About AgroStar:  AgroStar is India’s foremost AgTech start-up with a mission of #HelpingFarmersWin. Shardul and Sitanshu started AgroStar with a vision to solve two of the biggest problems in Indian agriculture - Lack of guidance for scientific/sustainable farming & limited access to great quality farm inputs.

Today AgroStar provides full-stack solutions to millions of farmers across 5 Indian states via an omnichannel approach. Along the journey, we have built India’s largest agronomy advisory center, a highly engaged digital farmer network with over 5 million users, and a retail network of 3000+ stores. These technology-enabled channels work together to help farmers produce better and achieve higher price realizations by providing appropriate advice, timely input delivery, and output market linkages. 

In March 2022, we acquired INI Farms, and with this, we are now exporting our farmer’s produce to over 32 countries across the globe.

With massive synergies across the value chain to unlock, we are excited about our next phase of exponential growth, while being more mission-focused than ever before! #HelpingFarmersWin!

Backed by prominent investors and partners we are rapidly growing our full-stack platform and access to credit.
