Article in the HINDU Businessline about a efarmDirect - Farmer’s agri marketing and supply chain portal. http://www.efarm.in/press-coverage/efarm-an-online-marketplace-for-farmers-buyers-businessline-jul-8-2012
As one of the key issues for farmers is finding buyers and better prices, efarm bridges the gap in using ICT tools to support farmers via web/call centre/sms to reach out to stake holders.
More details :
If you’re from efarm, please work to fix your website (efarm.in). It has incomplete and conflicting information that is confusing to visitors. Entire sections are under-construction, how-it-works video says you do grassroots work while Hindu article says you only manage the website. FAQ section has 80% questions unanswered.
The site appears like an abandoned building. I remember visiting it months back and getting confused in a similar manner. I hope it will be updated soon. When people visit and fail to get information they want, they are not going to return again and again.
Hi Sir ,
Thanks for your frank feedback … yes, i head efarm and your opinion is very true … as we are a small startup, and stretrched between ground ops and our portal work, havent got time to even update the main website … we had shifted most of our live status updates to facebook & linkedin which also created a more active community rather than the static website … which was easier to mantain whereas the main portal required developers who are expensive
you will find more updated status of our work at :
do give us a wekk and we will keep teh main site also refreshed … appreciate your concern and continued support…
And I appreciate your response. All the best with your work.
Found this interesting site.which brings together the farmer and end user eliminating the middle man
