Kgpians are Supporting 2.5 Million Indian Farmers

During the pandemic, India's agricultural sector has sustained economic growth and that growth is reflected in an all-time rise in tractor sales. But more than 70% of the farmers own less than one hectare of land with 30-40% lower yield in comparison to developed nations. Two Kgpians are set to address this challenge. Kgpians Tauseef Khan and Nishant Mahatre started Gramophone in 2016, a full-stack intelligent farming platform that guides farmers throughout the crop cycle. The startup claims that farmers can expect a 30-40% net increase in income by using these solutions.
