So we have compiled a list of agriculture startups in India that are making a name and increasing their growth in quick succession.

Founded by Kamesh Mupparaju and Linus Lindgren in 2018, SFarmsIndia is an online web application with two core functions; listing and fraction trading.

These two functions work together creating a great synergy. On the listing platform, buyers can find/search agricultural lands and sellers can list/post the agricultural lands for sale/lease.

On the other hand, SFarmsIndia's main USP is that it makes an agreement with the seller (Agri-realty developer) to issue fractions by digital land contract against their lands.

Each agricultural land is assigned with a digital contract and divided into 2000 fractions per acre, thereby enabling medium to small income groups to acquire lands easily. After owning the fraction, people can sell it directly through the trading platform.

Technology is the core of SFarmsIndia's business operations. Using technology, they intend to create an effective and efficient platform for Agri-lands that can eliminate the middlemen who inflate the prices.
