For the farmers growing crops like green vegetables in their fields, the maintenance and storage of their vegetables is the most important problem and due to this they also have to suffer a lot. However, now to get rid of this problem to the farmers, some alumni of IIT have designed a very unique and economical ‘Vegetable Cooler’.
Created by IIT Mumbai alumni, this special vegetable cooler runs without electricity or any other fuel and farmers can keep their vegetables fresh for about a week by taking its help.
Amazing of this startup
Vikas Jha along with his partners Saryu Kulkarni and Gunwant Nehte are constantly striving to increase the income of farmers through their agritech startups. Keeping this effort in the center, all three have made this special vegetable cooler. Thane based startup Rukart Technology has designed this vegetable cooler.
Talking to the media, the co-founders of the startup have told that they used to visit villages during their college and only then they came to understand how farmers are paying for their crop produce due to storage and maintenance problems. Not making enough profit. It was from here that all three started working on the vegetable cooler.
Farmers got help during Corona
Due to the nationwide lockdown implemented due to the corona virus epidemic, a big problem had arisen in front of the farmers regarding the storage of their crops as they were not able to reach the green vegetables to the market as easily as before. In such a situation, a large number of farmers have worked to save their green vegetables through vegetable coolers, which helped them to avoid major losses.
The specialty of vegetable cooler is that it needs water at least once a day and then it works like an earthen pot and maintains the necessary coolness inside. Keeping in mind the need of the farmers, the startup has designed vegetable coolers in different sizes. These vegetable coolers are effective for all levels of farmers from small farmers to farmers. By using vegetable coolers, even big farmers can easily get rid of the cost of cold storage.
