Forging the Future of Agriculture Technology
While AgTech solutions have been in existence for some time, it is only in recent years that companies in this niche started using blockchain technology.
Dimitra’s value proposition to smallholder farmers is primarily helping decentralized architecture. It also supports other advanced technologies, including IoT, big data, and machine learning.
So far, Dimitra has registered over 1 million farms and over 15 million farmers, mainly targeting developing economies.
In an AMA , the CEO Jon Trask, modern-day technologies such as blockchain have a massive potential of changing the landscape of agriculture,
“Decentralization is playing a role in making changes to the agriculture industry through changing the nature of trust and increasing transparency … As regulations continue to grow, blockchain is playing a key role in managing the delivery of those safety components in the food chain.”
Besides joining the ZenX incubator, Dimitra has the backing of prominent organizations. The list includes Bangladesh’s NGO Sojag, Agzon Agritech Pvt Ltd, OBC Indian Chamber of Commerce for 1.3 million farms and the National Animal Genetic Research Center of Uganda, amongst others.
Dimitra’s all-in-one AgTech solutions are made for various stakeholders such as farmers, governments, and NGOs to improve agricultural practices.
Ideally, this leading AgTech company leverages data-driven farming to assist stakeholders in increasing yield, reducing cost and mitigating risk.
