Agri logistics conglomerate Sohan Lal Commodity Management Pvt Ltd (SLCM), based in Delhi, has announced the official launch of the beta version of a quality check (QC) mobile application for agricultural commodities.
Initially introduced for wheat, which is a staple food grain in most parts of India, the app’s capabilities will be progressively extended to include other important food grains and pulses like chana (chickpea), maize, rice, guar (cluster bean), moong and tur (pigeon pea) over time.
A global first for food grains, the “AgriReach Mobile Quality Check App” allows the user to get an on the spot assessment of the commodity’s sample within minutes, without having to use equipment like sieve, weighing scale, etc., or to take it to a lab for testing.
Speaking on the occasion, Sandeep Sabharwal, CEO, SLCM Group, said, “This first-of-its-kind solution is entirely a result of 4 years of intensive research by our in-house team of experts. The test results are agnostic of the total sample weight as they are assessed based on its image. The app’s rollout is part of our commitment to provide our customer base with agritech solutions embedded in the software as a service (SaaS) model.”
