The e-spray contains an IoT device that allows users to track spraying activity in real time, allowing a farmer to monitor the entire activity

AgNext Technologies, a leading global agritech company, has introduced E-Spray, an electrostatic-based pesticide sprayer for 360° crop coverage, zero pesticide wastage or excessive pesticide dripping.’ E-spray disperses electrostatically charged atomized liquid spray in a way that attracts and coils to the leaf or crop itself, while also recording the user’s geolocation.

The e-spray contains an IoT device that allows users to track spraying activity in real time, allowing a farmer to monitor the entire activity such as movement of spraying person with GPS location on map, Sprayed Area, Chemical Consumption, start & end time of spraying etc, and prevent malpractices. These sprays come in a variety of capacities and can be easily transported from one location to another, reducing soil toxicity and water contamination. This e-spray by Agnext helps in limiting the presence of pesticides in the crop and maintaining it to an optimum level.

 Taranjeet Singh Bhamra, Founder & CEO, AgNext Technologies, said “E-spray is a breakthrough technology developed by Agnext. It is an electrostatic sprayer designed in a way so as to give the maximum benefit to the farmers. We are working towards developing and deploying more such technology in rural areas that will change the lives of farmers as well as the whole agriculture landscape”.

In addition to being advantageous for farmers and consumers, it also aids “Sprayer” because charged particles don’t enter the sprayer’s respiratory system, preventing long-term lung diseases.

Set up in 2016, AgNext Technologies is a fast-emerging global agritech start-up that provides deep-tech enabled solutions for food quality assessment to enable quality-based food trade. The company has innovated full-stack solutions to enhance productivity & profitability of agribusinesses’ operational excellence in post-harvest agriculture.

AgNext is uniquely positioned to provide pioneering technologies that can be instrumental in fostering a digitized ecosystem for quality-based food trade in the MENA region.

Gurugram based Agritech start up AgNext Technologies, a leading agritech start-up, has opened its first international office in the Middle East, as a part of its global expansion strategy. Located in Abu Dhabi, the office will serve as the company’s international headquarters to facilitate overseas operations in MENA markets. With the aim to bring deep-tech enabled solutions for improved, quality-driven food trade, the company will be forging a high-impact leadership team that will be based in Abu Dhabi.

Speaking about the expansion, Taranjeet Singh Bhamra, Founder & CEO, AgNext Technologies said, “After establishing market leadership in India, we are excited to enter the UAE, which is a recognized world leader in food trade and agriculture 4.0. AgNext is uniquely positioned to provide pioneering technologies that can be instrumental in fostering a digitized ecosystem for quality-based food trade in the MENA region. By connecting buyers and sellers on the axis of quality through AgNext Global Network (AGN), we can deliver superior market linkages, end-to-end traceability and export fulfillment. This ultimately culminates into an improved food trade experience with better price realization for our customers. The country’s food trade potential is immense and it offers us fertile grounds to facilitate our global expansion plans for MENA and other markets.”

It is estimated that lack of quality assessment solutions lead to approximately $90 billion in losses globally in agricultural trade. AgNext has innovated deep-tech enabled solutions that address this issue and provides blockchain-enabled traceability across the supply chain. The company has the largest commodity portfolio across grains, oilseeds and pulses, spices, animal feed and beverages segment, with comprehensive physical and chemical analysis solutions. AgNext has collected over 3 million+ food samples to build unique and massive datasets across diverse food categories.

By opening their first international office in Abu Dhabi, AgNext will work to deepen their reach into the MENA markets by diversifying its commodities portfolio and accelerating innovation to drive quality-based food trade.

Hopes that the upcoming budget will prioritise R&D incentivisation in agriculture besides an increase in rural infrastructure

Agri expects have shared their pre-budget wishlist. Amit Sinha, Co-Founder, Unnati, expects the government to keep farmer upliftment, alongside rural growth and development as their topmost priority. An increase in investments of rural infrastructure, MSME development, digitisation of the agri-ecosystem, and farmer productivity prioritisation of Agritech to fund early-stage start-ups that are disrupting the agricultural economy also need to be focussed on, according to him.

Sinha adds, “Some additional focus areas could be the allocation of funds for increased digitalisation in the agricultural ecosystem, the promotion of collaboration between district governance and Agritech startups to bring innovative solutions to the farmers’ market, providing subsidies or cutbacks on taxes to farmers who opt for Agritech products. Easy access to capital, tax relaxation, and interest subvention to encourage FPO setups will allow the agritech industry to grow quickly and will help FPOs to gain traction in this new era.

He also mentions financial support to farmers, extensions to important government schemes like Pradhan Mantri Matsya Sampada Yojana, PM-Kisan Scheme, etc., the government will need to turn their attention to.

According to Taranjeet Singh Bhamra, CEO & Founder,, 2021 was a good year for the agritech sector, which flourished with strong investments and greater adoption of technologies in the market. Bhamra hopes that the upcoming budget will prioritise R&D incentivisation in agriculture, along with the supportive impetus to allow agritech businesses, particularly start-ups, to scale domestically at a greater pace.The emerging agritech ecosystem also requires a focus on infrastructure development and governance frameworks to spur more innovation in the sector. Fiscal considerations can be beneficial to facilitate the growth of the Indian agritech sector in 2022, is what he has to say.
