The collaboration aims to revolutionize farming practices by introducing real-time monitoring technology that empowers farmers with data-driven insights for enhanced productivity and sustainability. The agronomic farm management system monitors crops and the surrounding environment throughout the entire crop cycle, offering continuous support and data insights for better decision-making. This data-driven approach enables farmers to respond promptly to changing conditions and challenges, leading to increased crop resilience and profitability.
Zuari FarmHub has initiated the pilot trials of the CropX system at Zuari Agri Innovation Centre in Solapur as well as select farmer fields across Karnataka & Maharashtra. This marks the beginning of an exciting phase in modernizing agricultural practices. CropX offers a state-of-the-art hardware-enabled system that monitors critical agronomic parameters in real time, paving the way for precision agriculture. These smart devices collect predictive soil data, combining it with additional data sources in and around the farm, and deep agronomic knowledge to generate recommendations on irrigation and nutrient management. This helps farmers to make informed decisions that optimize resource usage and improve crop growth.
“We, at Zuari FarmHub are thrilled to partner with a pioneering agri-tech company like CropX Technologies, that shares our vision of revolutionizing agriculture through cutting-edge technology,” said Madan Pandey, MD & CEO of Zuari FarmHub. “By providing farmers with real-time data and precise recommendations, we are empowering them to maximize yields, reduce resource wastage, and ensure sustainable farming practices.”
