Indian agtech firm Zuari FarmHub is partnering digital agronomics specialist CropX Technologies. The collaboration aims to improve farming through real-time monitoring and data-driven insights.

Zuari FarmHub has begun trials of the CropX system at Zuari Agri Innovation Centre in Solapur as well as certain farms across Karnataka and Maharashtra.

CropX offers a hardware-enabled system that monitors agronomic parameters in real-time. These smart devices collect predictive soil data, combining it with additional data sources in and around the farm, and agronomic knowledge to generate recommendations on irrigation and nutrient management. This helps farmers to optimise resources and improve crop growth.

“We at Zuari FarmHub are thrilled to partner with a pioneering agri-tech company like CropX Technologies, that shares our vision of revolutionising agriculture through cutting-edge technology,” said Madan Pandey, MD & CEO of Zuari FarmHub. “By providing farmers with real-time data and precise recommendations, we are empowering them to maximise yields, reduce resource wastage, and ensure sustainable farming practices.”

“The collaboration with Zuari FarmHub represents an exciting opportunity to extend the reach of our innovative solutions to Indian farmers,” said Tomer Tzach, CEO of CropX Technologies. “By combining our agri-tech expertise with Zuari FarmHub’s deep understanding of the Indian agricultural landscape, we aim to re-vitalise industry practices.”

As the pilot progresses, Zuari FarmHub will roll out the CropX system in other regions of India.
