Do you want to be part of a fast-growing tech startup? building innovative and sustainable technology in the Agriculture sector and working on the projects that define the larger outcome for generation.

AgroStar is India’s foremost AgTech start-up with a mission of #HelpingFarmersWin. Shardul and Sitanshu started AgroStar with a vision to solve two of the biggest problems in Indian agriculture - Lack of guidance for scientific/sustainable farming & limited access to great quality farm inputs.

Today AgroStar provides full-stack solutions to millions of farmers across 9 Indian states via an Omni channel approach. Along the journey, we have built India’s largest agronomy advisory centre, a highly engaged digital farmer network with over 7 million users, and a retail network of 7500+ stores. These technology-enabled channels help farmers produce better and achieve higher price realizations by providing appropriate advice, timely input delivery, and output market linkages.

In March 2022, we acquired INI Farms, and with this, we are now exporting our farmer’s produce to over 32 countries across the globe.

With massive synergies across the value chain to unlock, we are excited about our next exponential growth phase while being more mission-focused than ever! #HelpingFarmersWin!
