Top 5 Agritech Startups in India

India is an agricultural economy. In other words, agriculture forms a key component of the primary sector of India’s economy, with Indian agriculture and allied sectors contributing to 20% of the nation’s GDP in 2021, according to StatisticsTimes. However, agriculture is highly susceptible to extraneous factors such as weather, market dynamics, geopolitical conflicts, and governmental policy, making it all the more difficult for Indian farmers. However, thanks to the boom of India’s startup ecosystem, agriculture technology or ‘AgriTech’ has picked up steam and grown exponentially over the last couple of years, with over 1000+ AgriTech companies adding value to the agriculture landscape of India.
