Founded in 2020 by Jagan Chitiprolu, Kalyan Enjamoori, and Dr Shyamsundar Reddy, Samhitha has developed a Digital Tree Health Audit System (DTHAS) to record, analyse, and interpret the health of individual trees in a farm through data, telemetry devices, and the Citron app. The DTHAS method helps generate virtual maps delivering a detailed picture of the health status of the orchard, both historically and in real-time.

Samhitha founder Jagan Chitiprolu said, “We conceptualized Samhitha with a singular goal – empower agriculture experts with data and insights, who in turn enable farmers to maximize their produce. We conducted a pilot run in the Telangana region, focusing exclusively on citrus growers. Spanning across 4 lakh trees and 3,500 acres, Samhitha enabled farmers to clock over 30 per cent higher yield year-on-year and identified over 52 on-field defects.”

The company plans to leverage these funds to accelerate advisor onboarding and team expansion. The funds will further boost Samhitha’s plan to solve market linkage challenges for the farmers and amplify their profitability. While Samhitha is focused exclusively on citrus growers in Telangana and AP currently, the company plans to expand its advisory services across the nation.
