India is an agricultural country, and the agriculture sector has always played an essential role in the country’s economy. Despite this, the sector is still unorganized. Farmers and mandi suppliers auction their agricultural market produce in Indian mandis, which each state regulates under the Agricultural Produce Marketing Committee (APMC) Act. But until a few years ago, due to a lack of adequate information, farmers and agricultural mandi traders had to face many challenges and needed to know the fair price for their commodities. Often, they had to sell their produce at low rates or sell the same in select mandis. Even buyers often worked with an existing supplier or FPO. This limited their access to a wide range of commodities from other regions. The buyers still needed to get good quality commodities at the right price.
The introduction of digital solutions and agritech in the last few years, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, machine learning, climate-smart advisory, geo-tagging, and the Internet of Things (IoT), has led to the transformation of this sector. The agriculture sector is showing a substantial increase in investors, and even agritech startups in India are doing well. Bijak has also emerged as one of the best agritech startups and has become India’s most trusted agri commodity trading app in the last 3 years.
