Ms. Simone Strey says Plantix is the world’s most downloaded app for small-scale farmers – combining artificial intelligence and the expertise of leading research institutions around the globe. Millions of customers use Plantix computer vision every season in order to identify the diseases, pest damages and nutrient deficiencies that are affecting their crops. For the first time in their farming life, many are now able to obtain an accurate in-field diagnosis and, with that at hand, to act timely, avoid crop loss, and improve pesticide and fertilizer use. It is estimated that between 30 and 40% of annual yields are lost due to pests and disease. In addition, Plantix makes sure that farmers get the most appropriate products at their local dealer. With this end-to end approach, farmers get a helpful product in a market that tends to sell farmers not-suited products in as much as 50% of all cases. With the biggest farmer and the biggest retailer base in India, Plantix makes a huge impact, and will continue to grow this impact in the future. As the approach of Plantix is fully digital, Plantix can scale fast and is able to generate unprecedented data-driven insights for the entire value chain of agri-inputs. The goal is to make small-scale farming economically and environmentally sustainable to feed the generation to come.
