Ecozen Solutions, founded by IITians, has come up with solar-powered cold storage and water pump, which help farmers irrigate crops and store perishable items like flowers, fruit, and vegetable.
Indian farmers are always at the mercy of weather due to the lack of several critical solutions, including storage and irrigation.
