The farmers find it extremely difficult to know the proper type of fertilizer, which would match his soil. In using a fertilizer he must take into account the requirement of his crops and the characteristics of the soil.
The basic objective of the soil-testing programme is to give farmers a service leading to better and more economic use of fertilizers and better soil management practices for increasing agricultural production. High crop yields cannot be obtained without applying sufficient fertilizers to overcome existing deficiencies.
To promote uniformity in agriculture marketing by streamlining of procedures across the integrated markets, removing information asymmetry between buyers and sellers and promoting real time price discovery based on actual demand and supply.
Farmers can sell in their produces at better prices from their fields without thinking about factors like logistics, middlemen, packaging etc. A user-friendly mobile application for the farmers that allows them to post their produces with details such as pricing, grades and quantity. These produces subsequent to passing quality checks are made available for bidding to consumers. Each and every stage of the produce can be tracked by the farmer via the app.

Storage is a very important marketing aspect, involving holding and preserving goods from the time they are produced until they are needed for the consumption purpose. Storage helps the stabilization of prices by adjusting demand and supply as it protects the quality of perishable and semi-perishable products from deterioration.

Falca with its vast experience and understanding the farmer’s problems came up with an idea of f-hire. In India, as we all know that not every farmer can afford his own tractor and heavy machinery. Small farmers ask for tractors and equipment from the other farmers who own them, leading to uncertainty, lack of availability compromise on the quality of tractors and equipments.
Most of the farm equipments remain idle for the majority of their life although owners are paying monthly instalments along with maintenance cost. The option to rent equipment makes great sense financially since you need it for a few months adding to it you need not pay for their maintenance. Technology is ever-changing so farmers can rent the latest equipment whenever they are in need instead of using old machineries. That's where f-hire comes into the picture. Through f-hire whenever farmers need a tractor or any farm equipment, they can simply call f-hire or use our mobile app, and place their order.
They will receive a well-maintained requested machinery along with a skilled operator with utmost ease and at affordable cost. They can get their work done in a hassle-free manner, with the use of latest mechanisation thereby increase their yield.
