Bengaluru-based agri-start up Agdhi on Tuesday said it has bagged a Biotechnology Ignition Grant of $70,000 (around Rs 52 lakh) for its flagship product 'SeedVision.' SeedVision is an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based seed phenotyping method that classifies critical parameters of a seed in a few minutes, it said.

Agdhi in a statement said it "has received a grant from BIG for $70,000/- for their flagship product, SeedVision- Seed Classifier and Quality Analyser".

This product would help farmers get good seeds for cultivation and help growers improve the number of cycles because of faster payment realization from seed companies, it said.

Biotechnology Ignition Grant (BIG) is a flagship programme of the Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council (BIRAC), which is a not-for-profit public sector enterprise and largest early stage biotech funding programme.
