India’s leading agritech platform, BigHaat, has roped in Jitesh Shah as its chief operating officer to boost the adoption of agritech and expand its presence from 10 million farmers to the next milestone.

Speaking on the appointment, Sateesh Nukala, CEO & Co-Founder, BigHaat, said, “We welcome Jitesh to our BigHaat family as BigHaat endeavours to enhance the services and becoming the go-to name for all farmers in India. Jitesh’s experience and his expertise will help us reach our goals faster. His extensive industry knowledge will help in driving future business, expanding our portfolio as well as looking at new routes to market.”

BigHaat is India’s fastest-growing agritech startup and a leading player in providing end-to-end solutions for the farming community. The startup recently touched a milestone of catering to 10 million farmers across India. BigHaat is transforming the agricultural value chain from pre-harvest to post-harvest leveraging data, technology, and crop science. BigHaat also has an Agri-Store with a wide range of quality inputs such as seeds, pesticides, fertilisers, nutrients and farm implements.

With the help of its tech-enabled farmer-centric platform, BigHaat is addressing the challenges posed by conventional retailers, thereby helping farmers to make informed decisions while buying inputs such as seeds and pesticides resulting in cost savings and better yield.
