About Us

Our Story

Fasal started with a simple idea - Removing guesswork from farming.

Farming is not easy and involves a lot of uncertainties. Farmers make most of these decisions based on their own experience, knowledge passed on from their elders or recommendations from their fellow farmers. However, our farmers have found themselves in a scenario where their ways of decision making have remained the same but everything around it has changed including the climate, the soil, the agro chemicals, the seeds, the fertilisers, etc. Fasal felt that a massive disruption was needed in the way our farmers are making farm level decisions. These decisions cannot have any element of guesswork.

"How much irrigation is required for a particular soil type? When should the crop be irrigated? Is there a chance that a particular disease will attack my crop in the next few days? How much and which spray to use? Is this the right weather condition to take a spray? What are the different activities to be carried out during the different stages of the crop? What type of fertilizers should be used; how much and when?"

Fasal saw that these uncertainties pondered the farmer's mind not just during specific crop stages, but every minute; every hour and everyday while the crop was standing in their farms. Fasal realized that only data driven farming would take the guesswork out of farming by pinpointing exactly what works and also what doesn't work.

2018 was where Fasal started the journey with just four team members and now we are on our way to impact the Indian Agriculture in a big way! Since its inception, Fasal has helped its numerous farmers reduce cost of cultivation and increased quality and yield, through our AI powered platform for horticulture, delivering farm specific, crop specific, crop-stage specific, actionable advisory. We propagate sustainable agriculture and our solution impacts the social, economical and environmental facets, hence making a big impact on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

Fasal is driven by Innovation. And we are on the quest to make precision agriculture accessible to every farmer in the world!

Fasal: Cultivating farms with software

The Bible says Jesus turned water into wine but does not exactly give a prescription of the frequency and volume of irrigation that a vineyard needs. Fasal, an agriculture technology startup, founded in 2017 by two software engineers from farmer families, makes software that tell wine grape growers when and how much to water their vineyards.
