“Agriculture is the most beautiful, most useful, and the noblest employment of men.”

You can survive without almost everything: vehicles; technology; the internet. But you can’t survive without food, and that is a fact.

Food is important but the noble men who grow them, the farmers, are not given so much importance in today’s date. And, we are glad to bring you the story of Krishi Network: a platform solely dedicated to the farmers and their needs.

What is Krishi Network?

Gurgaon based Krishi Network is the one-stop solution for farmers to get instant and accurate answers to agriculture-related queries and realize higher profits from their land.

Founded by IIT-Kharagpur alumni Ashish Mishra and Siddhant Bhomia. The platform eases information accessibility for farmers and enables them to generate higher profits from their land. Operated by Cultino Agrotech Pvt Ltd, the platform provides a mix of online and offline support, helping farmers grow their horizon by reliably connecting them to experts and other agri-businesses beyond their local area.

How does Krishi Network work?

Krishi Network is a community platform for Indian farmers to connect with experts, merchants, organized buyers, and each other. Farmers can ask any questions related to farming from crop disease detection, mandi price visibility, merchant visibility and soil-crop suitability.

Well, you can say that Krishi Network is Facebook, Quora, Twitter, and all that you could think of, for the farmers. Farmers can easily join the platform and get access to all kinds of knowledge related to farming over there. Not only this, they can post their success stories, ask questions and connect to the expert farmers and the Agri-brands directly.
