Come September, Future Food Asia 2020 (FFA) in Singapore will witness two startups in agri space from India among 11 finalists across the Asia-Pacific region competing for $100,000 award.

Punjab-based Agnext and Bengaluru-based TartanSense will participate in the fourth edition of FFA, scheduled to be held from September 21-25.

Mohali-based AgNext provides a technology platform (“Qualix”), to assess trade quality and safety parameters for multiple commodities in a minute, enabling agribusinesses to leapfrog their procurement process, optimise costs and provide traceability.

“We are offering technology-based solutions across procurement, trade, production and consumption of food and agriculture value chains,” said Taranjeet Bhamra, CEO, AgNext.

TartanSense addresses the problem of weed management for cotton farmers through its flagship technology, ‘Brijbot’, an AI-driven robot that travels through cotton fields and sprays weedicide and herbicide with 98% precision. — TNS
