Podcast - Diving Deeper into Greenhouse Systems with Kheyti

Updated: May 4

The success of Agritech is critical for India. That’s because the Agriculture sector of India is a source of livelihood for more than 50% of the Indian population and contributes over 15% to the GDP of the country. But the Agri scene is not all sunshine and monsoons. We’re talking reducing productivity, weather tantrums, chemical overload, and a market more fragmented than a broken papad. So, we decided to dive headfirst into India’s Agritech value chain to break down – what startup founders have been creating and how it’s impacting Indian farmers, and of course to get more people talking about it.


In this episode, we dive deeper into the Greenhouse space with Kaushik, co-founder of the award-winning startup Kheyti, that has developed an affordable greenhouse solution for small & marginal farmers. Kaushik passionately talks about the impact of climate change on Indian farmers, how their greenhouse-in-a-box helps to increase farmers’ resiliency to climate change, and where the sector is headed. So, grab a cup of coffee and dive right in…
