Latest farming technology news Videos helping farming practice Information on organic farming and one common plaform for farmer, traders, service providers to interact and mutually benefit with each other
The content areas described above can be enhanced or refined, as one better understands what information is being consumed, but the idea is to provide a single place where national/regional/local information on weather and markets – in either print or video or audio…so in both basic and rich formats – can be distributed and accessed.
In its first form, Agroway allows buyers and sellers to browse and promote goods and services…ultimately allowing them to connect outside of the app (email or whatever) to follow up on deal consummation. Ultimately, this commerce functionality could be closed loop…where the actual commercial transaction is completed within the construct of the app.
Simple or rich messages can be pushed to the tablet/mobile device and can be targeted based on time, location, and in-app/mobile behaviour. Ultimately, the publisher of these messages can apply custom rules, so that highly defined subsets of the download universe can be segmented and targeted directly.
The publishing entity shall know what messages are opened, where they are opened (from a location point of view), allowing for campaigns to be measured one against the other…and language and offers to be modified for greater engagement.
This solution is aimed at complete Agriculture Industry vertical. Keeping farmer as the centric this will be a very useful tool of communication for the entire agriculture ecosystem. Agroway will help the farmer grow and also sell his crop directly. Farmers now can avail services from the service providers like Pump repairer, Electricians, Drip repairer / installers, Veterinary doctors etc at competitive rates as these service providers of nearby his village and Taluka can be accessed by him on Agroway.
Overview - In an effort to provide the farming community in India with the most robust informational and commerce-enabling tool available, several Indian-based and international companies have joined forces to create Agroway, a mobile application distributed on android handsets using available digital connectivity to provide farmers a resource that can truly help productivity. The goal is to offer farmers not just information regarding weather, trends, markets, and promotions…but to also be able to connect farmers with suppliers and buyers of product – doing all of this with a location-aware capability and hyper local sensibility. The result is a resource for both production and planning…and actual commerce opportunities…all intended to support and grow such a vital part of the country’s economy.
The Product- Agroway is a mobile platform available on Google Play. It is in the language most appropriate for the area(s) of distribution (Multilingual).
Software - There are two primary pieces to the software that are imbedded in the app that:
1. App Content – Agroway is a content environment that allows farmers to get the latest information in the key areas of:
a. Weather –National, regional, and local…complete with trends, planning, and soil updates
b. Markets – Latest analysis regarding the specific markets for agriculture products
c. Technology – Latest information from manufacturers and consultants on new farming capabilities, equipment, and innovations…
d. Schemes/Promotions – Insights into special offers and deals and resources from government and related agencies
e. Media – Content area for videos to be distributed detailing latest news for agriculture segments in specific regions
f. Community – Ability for farmers to share information and ideas with each other…though a Facebook interface
g. Buy/Sell– A single destination that allows buyers and sellers to browse/promote product, produce, and services within customized geographic parameters/proximity (determined by the end-user)
2. Messaging – Additionally, software is embedded into the app itself that allows the publishing entity, in this case the Agroway developer team but it could be, later, that the government has direct publishing capabilities on the “schemes” tab, to push messages, be they broadcast or rich in nature, to the farmers. These messages can be alerts on weather…or new incentive programs…and these messages can be formatted for a subset of the farmer community (say farmers for a specific crop) or they can be formatted based on time and/or location.
Role of Quality Information in Agriculture
In the context of agriculture, the potential of information can be assessed broadly under two heads:
As a tool for direct contribution to agricultural productivity and
As an indirect tool for empowering farmers to take informed and quality decisions which will have positive impact on the way agriculture and allied activities are conducted.
Precision farming, popular in developed countries, extensively uses Information Technology to make direct contribution to agricultural productivity. The techniques of remote sensing using satellite technologies, geographical information systems, and agronomy and soil sciences are used to increase the agricultural output. This approach is capital intensive and useful where large tracts of land are involved. Consequently it is more suitable for farming taken up on corporate lines. The direct benefits of Localised Information in empowering Indian farmer are significant and remain to be exploited. The Indian farmer urgently requires timely and reliable sources of information metrological inputs for taking decisions. At present, the farmer depends on trickling down of decision inputs from conventional sources which are slow and unreliable. The changing environment faced by Indian farmers makes information not merely useful, but necessary to remain competitive.
