Agritech Startups That Offer Solutions in Reshaping Thailand’s Agriculture

Agritech Startups That Empower Farmers in Thailand

Farmers put in countless hours of labour to ensure that their family and everyone else in the world have enough food to eat every day.

There’s no denying that farming is strenuous and laborious. Despite all the hard work, the job of a farmer does not stop there. They still need to sow the seed, set up an irrigation plan, place the proper amount of fertiliser, protect the crops, and more.

To ease these problems, there are startup companies that alleviate these issues by integrating technology in agriculture. Similar to some government initiatives, these companies create innovative solutions to help improve the old system that hurts farmers.

Here are some agritech startups in Thailand that might help you raise your agricultural profits and introduce more insightful strategies.

Flylab Feed

The company plans to innovate the animal feed industry by introducing a more sustainable alternative that will be beneficial to a wider variety of animals, including poultry, cattle, and even domesticated pets.
