Excerpt:

Situated on the periphery of Bengaluru city, Farmizen manages five farms of 10.5 acres, divided into mini farms of 600 sq ft each. By paying Rs 2500 as a monthly subscription fee that includes the monthly rent to the farmers, the individuals can grow vegetables of their choice as per the season in the twelve beds allocated to them in their mini farm. They control the farm through an app just like Farmville and can visit the farm anytime and harvest their own chemical-free produce.

The Farmizen team ensures that the consumer knows how and what reaches from their farm to the fork and has a system of adequate checks and balances in place against any violation.

The information is substantiated with pictures and live videos of the process and has a system of adequate checks and balances in place against any violation.

A comprehensive technology stack built by them include consumers’ app on Android and iOS, a farm management app for farmers (also available in regional languages), unmanned aerial videography using drones, image processing to identify crop growth stages for remote monitoring, a driver app for optimising delivery routes, and managing the last mile delivery.
