BKC Aggregators vision is to transform the socio-economic fabric of India by creating farmer-entrepreneurs. Our mission is to provide timely and actionable information to each farmer to increase production and incomes, and mitigate risks with real-time yield forecasts.
It all began in 1971 when our Founder, Dr. B. K. Singh, a fresh Ph.D in Agriculture from the Indian Agriculture Research Institute entered the workforce of post-independence and recently Green Revolutionized India. Starting out with agriculture commodity trading at the State Trading Corporation of India, he continued to grapple with the challenges of bringing extension to farmers and how much weather affected livelihoods and, lives of farmers in India.
His first company, BKC WeatherSys, established in 1989, was the first entity to bring 7 day weather forecasts to India, the first to provide weather forecasts to farmers through text messages, and the first to build an automated forecasting software, metGIS, that found operational use for the Indian Air Force, Navy, DRDO, and India Meteorology Department.
Memories of the Bihar famine of 1966-67 and recent droughts were ever fresh in his mind. In 2018, based on his combined experience of over 40 years in agriculture and meteorology, Dr. Singh launched BKC Aggregators with the mission of increasing farmers incomes and yields by delivering precision agriculture through a mobile app.
In two years time, FASAL SALAH has become one of the most popular agriculture apps in India. A farmer's lifeline, FASAL SALAH, provides timely and actionable advice and has already had a transformational effect on the lives it has touched.
