Market need: There has been a 200x increase in the cost of cultivation since 1970 without proportionate increase in price of agriculture commodities. Farmers do not receive appropriate returns for their produce, and often face uncertainty due to changing weather conditions, fluctuating markets, etc. Organic farming proves an ideal solution, which can significantly bring down the cost of cultivation, and help revive the soil. This gives farmers access to premium markets, and market information ensures that farmer make an informed decision on what to grow. On the other end, food contamination and adulterations is a really big challenge for urban consumers.
