CropIn's SmartRiskTM is an agri-ecosystem learning platform that utilizes advanced satellite imagery, extensive historical and real-time data about land composition, and detailed weather and climate forecasts to help food growers and businesses track, monitor, and evaluate every aspect of cultivation. The artificial intelligence and machine learning-based platform provide insights that enable sustainable and productive food security.

It is able to detect cropping patterns and predict the future of the crop, informing stakeholders of the associated risks and opportunities. Through this technology, smallholder farmers who are unable to provide collaterals to financial institutions can gain access to financial aid. These loans can enable them to invest in better quality farm inputs or modern farm machinery or equipment that would, in turn, increase their yield and income.
