On-demand business model uses a mobile application to get any service. This model was introduced by the taxi booking company Uber some 10 years back. So this on-demand model is also called as Uber business model. At present this model is used by many startup services. Less time and effort to get a service is the reason for the popularity of this business model. Now we will see how this Uber model is applied to the agriculture industry.
Farm equipment is never cheaper and it is not very easy for the farmers to purchase it. Even some basic equipment like tractor costs more than $10,000. For example, a laser-guided land leveler technology flattens a field in a fraction of time compared to the traditional technique. But this simple device costs $5000. Owning such equipment is next to impossible for 75% of the farmers across the world.
That is when I thought about farm equipment renting using the ‘Uber model’. Farmers who have different agriculture equipment can easily rent it to nearby farmers who don’t have it. Farmers who need any equipment can get anything with less time and effort. All these activities can be done on a mobile app.
In the on-demand app for farm equipment renting, people having farm equipment can list them on the app by specifying the rent and other technical details. Farmers who are looking for particular equipment nearby can search it in the app and request for it.
