AgSri brings grassroots research experiences to scale agricultural innovations in making farming profitable to farmers and industry.
Agriculture is in major crisis and sustainable agriculture is no more a debate but a reality. We know that current standard approaches of using more seed, fertilizers and water is not helping farmers and industry and is resulting in strain on the economics of operation, water resources and environment. We have seen that getting ‘More with More’ solutions have become a problem in itself.
There is a different approach to agriculture and WE at AgSri are exactly doing this. 'More with Less' in agriculture is not only possible but highly profitable. We are designing and implementing these knowledge intensive technologies and practices in the farmers', industrial and private farming fields.
We aim to be the leading global providers of innovative sustainable solutions to the growers, agri industry chain and water sector.
