Agribazaar, an online agri-commodity trading platform, has launched its pilot project in the crop advisory segment. The innovative initiative would initially benefit 3,000 farmers across select districts of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, the company said today.
Through the Agribhumi feature within the Agribazaar app, farmers can now access a comprehensive crop calendar. This calendar provides valuable insights such as crop-specific schedules, weather updates, soil health management, pest and disease control measures, and crop management practices.
