“India is traditionally an agrarian economy and the second largest gross agricultural producer in the world. By various industry estimates, India loses around 20% of agricultural output due to fragmented logistics and complex supply chain processes, said Sanket Deodhar, VP- of Unicorns & Digital Natives, SAP India. Agricultural innovations such as cloud technology and AI-enabled insights can take the guesswork out of farming practices and processes, with improved efficacies and operational agility. We are excited to work with DeHaat to revolutionize India's farming supply chain and aid production efficiency through data-driven innovation,” he added.
