Kissan Pro raises funds from EKKI
Kissan Pro, a Bengaluru-based agri-tech startup, announced that it has raised an undisclosed amount from EKKI, a pumps and water technologies manufacturer.
The round also participated from UAE-based Manu Midha of Innovacer, White Hill Ventures, and Amit Tripathy of Oyo.
Established in 2020, Kissan Pro — which operates on a phygital model — offers an all-in-one platform to empower farmers through technology, design, and data science. While it develops and encourages the effective use of the most advanced technology, it has also helped centers in every cluster where farmers can visit and get all required support.
The agri-tech startup’s services comprise yield prediction, plant health monitoring, soil moisture monitoring, irrigation equipment automation, irrigation scheduling, crop advisory, 3D soil moisture reporting, water and energy usage reports, canopy and anomaly monitoring, frost prediction, and in-field weather monitoring.
Speaking about the funding, Ravindra Dasoundhi, Co-founder and CEO of Kissan Pro said, “We are very excited to partner with EKKI Group , which is a firm making a huge impact on farmers’ lives with their innovative water solutions for the last 40 years. With their expertise and collaboration, we can create a massive impact at the grassroots level. We are happy to have them as an investor, advisor, and partner in progress.”
At present, Kissan Pro provides crop advisory to more than 25,000 farmers and also supplies inputs and marketing services to about 7,000 farmers in Ranchi, Hazaribagh, and Bokaro districts, Ravindra added.
Commenting on the investment, Kanishka Arumugam, Co-CEO of EKKI said, “We will continue to invest and work with technology startups such as Kissan Pro, whose technology could add value for EKKI’s customers in the future. Startups also gain affiliation with and mentoring from EKKI’s network of 500+ dealers across India who serve the Agri, Buildings, Industries, and Public Utility markets.”
Kissan Pro seems to be an interesting startup in the agritech space. I believe the company will continue to empower several farmers through its platform and achieve great success in its journey ahead. My best wishes to the team of Kissan Pro.Shishir Gupta, Founder and CEO, StartupLanes
