The Problem

Easy accessibility of booking, time and affordability of farm equipment have always been a challenge in
India. Farm equipment owners find difficult to increase the utilisation due to staged demand, finding the
right customer / reliable operator availability. Gold Farm aims to work closely with the Government and
the farm equipment manufacturers to make farm mechanisation affordable to small and marginal
farmers.
As against 90% mechanization in developed economies, India lags far behind because of previously
abundant availability of farm labor and fragmented land holding, resulting in poor economics to invest in
farm equipment.
Farm equipment shared economy addresses both these problems by creating a large pool of farm
equipment available on demand for the farmer.

equipment. For this, it collaborated with the local people and created a network of booking agents, who
