Brand Story

Niruthi is a SAAS based Agritech company

That leverages AI & ML, satellite data, weather and crop models to provide high-quality farm information management services for crop forecasting and risk management.

Niruthi was founded in 2009 to help the agriculture ecosystem in India by producing location-specific weather and historical crop yields to develop policies and management tools to mitigate the risk of farming and increase crop productivity. Backed by a strong science & Research team, Niruthi leverages NASA technologies to seamlessly assimilate data from multiple satellite data sources, near real-time weather data and a large network of ground observations on crop type and condition to produce farm-level actionable insights. Now it works with farmers, government agencies, crop insurers and financial institutions to provide information on crop area, crop health and agro-advisories, seasonal crop yield estimation and historical field-level information
