AgroStar is a Pune-based agrotech startup.

Basic Information

AgroStar is a platform which uses farm and farmer-specific data to provide real-time solutions to reduce farmers’ cost of production and improve yields. AgroStar bills its app as a “one-stop solution” that contains everything India’s 135 million farmers need, including agronomy tools, such as a crop disease diagnosis tool that combines image recognition technology, educational content and an e-commerce store that sells farming products. With agri-input shops remaining partly shut due to COVID-19, AgroStar is fulfilling farmers’ orders through its 500+ strong network of last mile delivery partners, who are doing doorstep delivery of agri-inputs, while following hygiene and social distancing norms prescribed by the government. More than 15,000 farmers have benefitted from this service from the comfort of their homes and have avoided stepping out to buy agri-inputs ahead of the Kharif season. In 2019, the startup raised $27 million in Series C funds in a funding round led by Bertelsmann India along with its existing investors Accel, Chirate Ventures and Aavishkar Bharat Fund. See more
