DataQuest|January 2022
In the session “Disrupting Agriculture with Deep Tech”, innovators in the AgriTech sector spoke about how technology empowers the agriculture vertical and how advanced technologies will bring in different business models (Moderated by Vaishnavi Desai)

Rajesh Jalan, CTO, Cropin Technology, said technology is going to be everywhere in the agriculture ecosystem with the coming of the cloud, loT, satellites, etc. It is also rising with development of AI/ML. The cost at which we are able to do things has also changed. We can analyze the world, on-demand. With technology, the whole agriculture ecosystem will get connected.

Scope of using new technologies in traditional markets are very high.
