Cropin: Agri startup Cropin says it has set up AI Labs to compute cultivable lands

Pune: Agriculture start-up Cropin has announced that it has set up a new AI Labs. With an initial team of 30 members comprising earth observation scientists, data scientists, agronomists and AI/ML researchers, the AI Labs will focus on studying and computing cultivable lands worldwide, the company said in a media release.

Leveraging the contextual convergence of earth-observation data, geo-fenced field data, AI models and knowledge built and tested over the years, Cropin’s AI Labs scientists will bring intelligence to every acre of the world’s farmlands.

The complex process of ‘Agri asset computation
brings together hyper local historical and forecasted weather data, soil information, agro-climatic conditions, seed genetics, global crop sowing and harvesting patterns, management practices, agronomical knowledge, land records, farmer KYC and other farming insights, all under one umbrella,” the release said.

Cropin’s claimed that its proprietary knowledge graphs are created on trillions of farm pixel datasets that continuously grow and multiply in time & space, allowing the company to build and implement the various AI models in any country in the shortest possible time.
Kumar, Co-Founder & CEO, Cropin said, “Over the past few years, our Earth Observation & AI science research teams have built global intelligence models for agriculture that are already unmatched in terms of accuracy and scalability in the real world. Cropin’s AI Labs will help us accelerate this effort to compute and bring the benefits of predictive intelligence to every acre of the world’s farmlands.”

“Cropin’s platform is capable of computing crop intelligence at planet scale, computing 0.2 billion acres of cultivable land so far in 13 countries including India, Nigeria, and Bangladesh covering 32 crops. Based in India and Europe, the Cropin AI Labs team will compute over 1.2 billion acres of cultivable lands across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, LATAM, and Africa regions by 2025,” the release said.
