AgroStar is India’s foremost AgTech start-up with a mission of #HelpingFarmersWin through the right advisory and solutions, powered by data and technology. It was started with a  vision to solve two of the biggest problems in Indian agriculture - Lack of guidance for healthy and sustainable farming AND limited access to quality farm inputs for consistent and qualitative farming.

With technology at its core, we have built an innovative & sustainable ecosystem that includes products such as customized enterprise sales solutions that maps data of farmers' crop life cycles, India's first online farmer community, online agri-advisory with online shopping for inputs, and an incomparable logistics solution for last-mile rural connectivity.

We have procured and partnered with leading national and international brands for major agri-inputs like seeds, crop nutrition, crop protection, and farm implements that are needed for farming and we deliver them to the doorstep of farmers. Thus, our efforts at AgroStar are focused to become the driving force to equip our farmers with the power of knowledge to farm better and smarter, through technology and up-to-date expert advice.  

The company is funded by prominent VCs like Chiratae Ventures , Aavishkaar, Accel Partners, Bertelsmann & Rabobank Netherland. AgroStar is the winner of Economic Times' Best Startup Award 2016, under the 'Social Enterprise' category.
