Driving the Needed Innovation
Prior to the introduction of Rohitkrishi Industries' multi-crop planters, farmers usually used seed drill to sow seeds on the basis of weight, such as 10-20 kg per acre. When the company introduced their planters, it completely transformed the sowing system. Since the test weight of the same crop variety of seeds varies from farmer to farmer. Rohitkrishi Industries altered the sowing system to one based on the number of seeds per acre. This was a game changer in the business, since seed requirement reduced by 5-15 percent and crop yield increased by 25-30 percent.
