Agdhi is on a mission to combine digital technology and human creativity. We are creating sustainable methods in agriculture.

Challenges

What are we solving?

SeedVision

The quality of seeds has become a growing concern. The phenotypic defects of seeds are one of the criteria for judging the quality. The traditional method of detecting seed defects typically relies on manual inspection, which is inefficient and subjective. Therefore, an objective and automated seed screening method is required.

Farmer Network India

When it comes to starting a new farm/ planting a crop on your own, every enthususiast has the question of what, when and how. Here comes the one stop solution for all your farming needs. Dive into a network filled with years of experience and knowledge. Farmer Network India allows you to get started with your favourite farming with state of the art technology advises and get you connected to the right people at the right time.

Planto

Timely attention and care to crops and unawareness of crop diseases are few of the major reasons why new farmers fail to make their efforts to market. Planto brings you the power to diagnose your plants from your mobile. It provides analysis and suggestions of what you are growing, how's it growing and what can you do to help. Be a crop doctor yourself by recognizing infecfted crops and treating for any pests or deficiencies.

How it works?

Standalone Solutions

Standalone solutions that can take images of seed samples and provide insights regarding the quality of the batch.

Computer Vision

Automated screening and seed quality testing using machine learning and computer vision technology.

Classifiers

Colour, texture, size, and shape, are extracted from images of seeds and the defects of the seed can be identified through various classifiers.

Completely Automated

Automated technique provides more efficient method for seed sorting compared to being inspected by human labour.

How we are doing it?

Artificial Intelligence

Machine Learning and Computer Vision techniques to create models for Seed Classification with Seed sampling to determine types inclusive of the percentages of distinct categories.

Internet of Things

Smart Farming, a hi-tech and effective system of doing agriculture and growing food in a sustainable way. We apply connected devices and innovative technologies together into agriculture.

Blockchain

Blockchain, a decentralized storage locker for real-time data on crop quality, which is utilized by farmers as well as their supply chain partners to increase the quality of products and clarify provenance systems.

Mobile

Mobile apps bring farmers with amazing new products making it easier to transition from handling fields and related information, to generating farm maps and helping usage of drones.

Cloud

Cloud computing is the perfect way to aggregate data from tools like soil sensors, satellite images, and weather stations which inturn helps farmers make better decisions about managing their crops.

Who we are?

Technologist

We are bunch of serious nerds with a creative head. With deep expertise in technology, we are well positioned to understand challenges, create state of the art technology solutions to tackle these challenges. With deep roots in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Cloud, Internet of things and Digital, we are well equipped to solve some of the grand challenges in the industry.

Farmers

Over the centuries, as farmers have adopted more technology in their pursuit of greater yields, the belief that 'bigger is better' has come to dominate farming, rendering small-scale operations impractical. But advances in robotics and sensing technologies are threatening to disrupt today's agribusiness model.

Industry Experts

We work alongside our clients to anticipate industry disruptions, innovate, apply a unique point of view on agricultural trends and opportunities, and build proven, successful business models. We have worked on more than 600 engagements across the agriculture industry and have consistently produced superior results.

AI Engineers

Deep learning algorithms can take a decade of field data—insights about how crops have performed in various climates and inherited certain characteristics—and use this data to develop a probability model. With all this information, far more than any single human can grasp, machine learning can predict which genes will most likely contribute a beneficial trait to a plant.

What do we do?

Digital

Demystify digital and focus on practical, immediate steps that set you on a path to digital leadership.

Cost

Whether you need to rapidly capture cost savings opportunities, zero-base your budget or strategically transform your cost structure, we can help.

Operations

Reimagine your operations—from supply chain to procurement—to unlock growth, reduce costs and unleash your strategy.

Strategy

Since IIA’s founding, our strategy has been our core business. We work with companies to develop strategies that deliver results.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Improve your odds of successful M&A through an integrated, battle-tested approach that links acquisition strategy, commercial diligence and merger integration.

Organization

Ensure your organization is set up to deliver on your company’s strategy.

Why?

Emphasis on importance of agriculture

Agriculture is an important source of livelihood in most parts of the world.

It involves tough work but it contributes to food security and health of the nation.

Before the industrial revolution, agriculture was the primary source of economy.

Though commercial options coming up, many rely on agriculture for their income.

Agriculture is a nature-friendly and most peaceful method of livelihood.

It is a very reliable source of livelihood and one of the honest sources of incomes.

People involved in other business or jobs still have agriculture as a side business.

Importance of sustainability

Since the 1950s, we have experienced unprecedented growth including intensive farming, a technological revolution and a massive increase in our power needs putting even greater pressure and strain on the planet's resources. It is not yet clear what our sustainable future will look like but with emerging technologies and the improvement of older cleaner fuel sources, many people now look to a post fossil fuel world - including businesses. We are also far more aware of the plight of the developing world and that facing our planet as we now observe both natural and human-caused disasters and the effects that these can have on the ecosystems and on human population. It's vital that we develop new, cleaner technologies to cope with our energy demands but sustainability is not just about the environment.

Importance of automation and efficiency

With the burst in productivity from industrial automation in the food and agriculture industries, it may be safe to assume significant increases in yield and rate of production, with reduced costs for the manufacturer. We can hope this would translate to reduced prices for consumers and greater access to food for populations internationally.
