Homegrown cloud technology provider ESDS Software Solution has launched its digital platform ‘Famrut’ at their Nashik Data Center. The company said that the newly introduced platform will assist farmers to extract maximum yield & thereby revenue from their piece of land by connecting them with relevant stakeholders in the agricultural ecosystem. Through Famrut the company aims to deliver farming solutions to farmers across the nation.
“This app has been designed keeping in mind the needs of the farmers and how we can help solve them,” Piyush Somani, Managing Director, and Chairman, ESDS said, adding that “Famrut is a solution for our farmers. We are a technology-driven company, and it has been our constant endeavour to use technology. Famrut is our first step in the agri-tech sector, and we aim at helping the farmers, co-operative societies, as well as the government through this initiative.”
Insufficient resources, lack of direct accessibility to the markets, unpredictable weather conditions that affect crops production, and the hours of manual labor that go into the process are few difficulties faced by a majority of the farmers. ESDS said its Famrut will enable farmers to connect with agronomists of their choice, accessibility to banking & insurance products, markets, and crop and cattle management, logistics, and solutions to help with farming.
Kishore Shah, Head – SPOCHUB said, “Our team has worked hard for developing Famrut, and we all are thrilled today to see this product finally getting launched. Famrut is aimed at being a helpful tool for our farmers.”
“Our aim is to simplify the farmers’ jobs in their field using technology and attempt to increase their income through the ecosystem. Famrut is developed to meet their needs. With research on the ground, inputs from various specialists in the agriculture sector, and a mix of digital technology, Famrut has been created,” Shah said.
