We deployed a smart technology-enabled process-driven environment that provides guidance to the farmers to cultivate the best yield and results from their farmland.
The challenge behind the development of SmartFarms application was to make the life of a farmer easier than before and allowing earning and saving more by directly dealing with the authorized persons and avoiding middlewares.
The primary focus was to develop an application with a user interface that would be easy to understand and use by the farmers considering that they are not very much familiar with the technology.
A major challenge for us was to develop the project with the least understanding of the market in very less amount of time which was available as the application was to be launched within this farming season.
The main intent of this project is to organize the unorganized agricultural sector by creating a smart technology-enabled process-driven ecosystem, which is convenient and sustainable for the farmers.Read Articles

We are solving one of the toughest problems of our times through technology. Our tailor-made technology and solutions have disrupted the way agricultural product and farm related service distribution happens. Small farmers benefit from this solution as government and market services have now become accessible to them without any middle men.
As a result of this project, the farmers are now able to get the farming inputs (seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, and equipment) at the best possible cost and in less time on through the SmartFarms platform.
We have ensured that design does not dictate the content and hence, the visual elements are also scrutinized and thought through at each stage.
To tackle issues like low crop price, we added features like live mandi prices.
To eliminate issues like lack of equipment, we have added a feature of equipment renting as well.
We have also aggregated content on farming techniques from scientists. With the help of this insight farmers can also schedule a soil test of their land.
Scientific and regional factors were taken into consideration while developing the business logic of the application that gives personalised recommendation to each farmer.
To tackle the problem of low yield, our network of seed warehouses stores the best quality seeds which farmers can buy from the app.
While developing the mobile application, the key feature that was emphasized was the UI of the application. As the farmers are the end-users of this application, it was kept in mind to keep UI simple and effective so that the user can use the application and reach the outcomes with clicks and fewer text inputs. Multilingual language support is also provided in the application considering that the farmers might not be familiar with English.
Various applications include various features to make the process easier than before. The conclusion of this project was the development of several applications like farmer application, delivery application, etc for several users in the whole scenario and the development of the admin panel to manage the features of these applications.
