Farming As a Service :
There is a mass exodus of labour underway in rural India. The Real estate boom and rural employment schemes have resulted in a three fold rise in labour wage growth rates from a decade ago. While certain parts of India and specific operations in the production chain have seen the first wave of mechanization, the rising labour wages slowly pave way for the next one. Basal Initiatives aims to ride this wave of farm mechanization by providing access to advanced technologies in a tech enabled, efficient and pay per use model across a range of services – crop residue management, land preparation, planting, crop management, harvesting and post harvest processing.
Booking – Dispatching- Monitoring:
Easy accessibility of booking, time and affordability of farm equipment have always been a challenge in India. Farm equipment owners find difficult to increase the utilization due to staged demand, finding the right customer / reliable operator availability. Basal initiatives aims to work closely with the Government and the farm equipment manufacturers to make farm mechanization affordable to small and marginal farmers.
As against 90% mechanization in developed economies, India lags far behind because of previously abundant availability of farm labor and fragmented land holding, resulting in poor economics to invest in farm equipment.
Farm equipment shared economy addresses both these problems by creating a large pool of farm equipment available on demand for the farmer.
