Online Buying and Selling Of Agricultural Crops
Explain your idea in details:
Agriculture was the key development in the rise of sedentary human civilization. Industrial agriculture based on large-scale monoculture in the twentieth century came to dominate agricultural output, though about 2 billion people still depended on subsistence agriculture into the twenty-first. The main objective of my idea is to increase the agricultural sector and provide good prices to the farmers for their life on land. We know that none of them are not getting reasonable prices to their crops. We also know that people who doing agriculture selling their crops with very small prices to the middle persons and the middle persons selling the crops with highly reasonable prices. The two parties from the selling and buying end are not getting reasonable prices. We create an application between farmers and the people who are buying crops from the middle people. We can definitely help the farmers and we can give them good reasonable prices. We can also start a business by buying the crops from the farmers through application and selling them to other countries by using export business also we can give a good price to the farmers. Finally, I can say that if we can do this the agricultural sector is booted up and the demand for agriculture is also increasing and there are no suicides of the farmers.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
From 1995 to 2013, a total of 296,438 Indian farmers committed suicide. During the same period, about 9.5 million people died per year in India from other causes including malnutrition, diseases, and suicides that were non-farming related, or about 171 million deaths from 1995 to 2013. Our targets are to increase the agricultural sector and increases the life on land. We know that most of the people are using Mobile applications and online shopping. My idea will definitely help to the farmers and we can be the one and only middle people who can give good prices for the farmers. We can also improve our business by exporting the crops to other countries where the crops have more demand. We can also put a volunteer for every village and educating the people and telling the advantages of our application.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
My idea is to develop an application in between farmers and the company buyers. Initially, I want to design an application to both the farmers and the company buyers. The farmers are using the selling application used to sell their crops through online. We are the middle persons. we buy the crops from the farmers and the necessary process is done by us before selling to the company buyers. We made an application to the company buyers. On that application, they can see the list of products, cost, description, stock in the background, refining process, etc. We can also export these crops to other countries thereby we can give the high reasonable price to the farmers. Therefore, there is no lose in both the parties from the farmer's side and the company buyers.
I am G Kumar Swamy s/o G V A Naidu from India. I am 21 years old. I have just completed my under graduation in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. My idea comes from my fathers daily lifestyle. He is a farmer. He started his agriculture life with paddy and due to not getting reasonable prices he left it and then shifts to Aqua-culture but there it gets the same and then he again comes back to the paddy crops. He doesn't know anything instead of agriculture. That makes me motivated this idea. I am from a middle-class background. I am a hard worker, quick learner and I am good at my innovative thinking that makes me to the success. My awards are I have won second prize in paper presentation in my second year of my b.tech and won the first price in G.K competition in the first year of my diploma. At Present, I got a job in Tata Consultancy services as Assitant System Trainee. Though, I am working on my idea.
