Mayagreens Revolutionizes Indian Agriculture with IoT and AI/ML-Powered Solutions
In a bid to transform traditional farming practices, Mayagreens, an innovative Automation and Servicing company, has harnessed the power of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML). The primary goal is to revolutionize agriculture by automating labor-intensive tasks, reducing dependency on manual labor, and enticing the younger generation to embrace agripreneurship.
Mayagreens’ cutting-edge products create interconnected networks among devices on different farms, enabling real-time data transfer. This technological synergy facilitates seamless communication between devices, empowering farmers with timely information to make informed decisions. The platform fosters a sense of community among farmers, encouraging collaboration, idea-sharing, and exploration of opportunities for collective growth.
Founded by Mr. Arul Kumarasamy, an IT Architect with a deep commitment to supporting Indian farmers, Mayagreens leverages over two decades of experience in national and global IT companies. Having left a lucrative job in the USA in 2019 to return to India, Kumarasamy aims to directly integrate technology into the farming landscape.
Mayagreens operates within a comprehensive agri-tech innovation ecosystem, focusing on three core pillars: providing services to farmers, building market access, and driving good governance initiatives. Their services span the entire farm lifecycle, offering support from seed to product stage.
A pivotal element of Mayagreens’ ecosystem is empowering farmers to monetize their produce through market-based opportunities and related services, including online sales support, food processing, and exports. The company plans to implement blockchain-based traceability and support the Open Network for Digital Commerce (ONDC) platform. Automation is identified as a key driver for scalability, with a strong commitment to reducing carbon footprints and promoting eco-friendly initiatives.
In alignment with the vision of Digital India, Mayagreens collaborates with rural colleges, introducing students to the IoT world to meet market demands. Through partnerships, Mayagreens assists in designing IoT curriculums, setting up labs with real-world sensors, gateways, and providing expert consultations, ushering in a new era of technological integration in Indian agriculture.
