Aqua App promises to help aqua-farmers yield big returns

|January 19, 2017 0

HYDERABAD, INDIA: To help over 75,000 farmers engaged in Aqua Culture in Andhra Pradesh and outside, two aqua farmers Ramachandra Raju and Venu Dantuluri have developed an  intuitive and user-friendly mobile application, called ‘​A​qua​ ​App’.

AP Fisheries market size is Rs 12,000 crores per annum. Farmers spend Rs 1,600 crores per annum on Medicines and Feed Additives.

Many farmers end up paying more through credits and middleman fee for procuring raw materials in the industry. Many farmers also  face challenges to gain good feed and sustain good quality of produce including paying up huge mark up price for feeds.


The purpose of this app is to introduce and help farmers embrace new ideas to help slash costs, minimise risks, and even generate capital.

“This app is a step towards to reduce these costs for farmers in the long run if adoption gains wide acceptance, said Ramachandra Raju, co-founder of the app and Delta Fish Farmers Welfare Association President and a farmer himself in the state of AP.

Currently available on Android and iOS, the mobile app rules out the possibility of middleman involvement in transactions and brings more transparency in the business besides detailed information about weather, new advancements in aqua culture and up to date market prices.

With the help of  this app farmers can employ many measures to make gains, including improvement in standards of feed efficiency, gain direct access to top quality manufacturers, daily market prices, weather reports that can make big savings.


The app has already started garnering interest among the farmers with over 1000 downloads. Most of them have begun to note its potential for gaining key production information and advice in real-time for immediate sharing.

“One of the advantages of the app is that it will provide market information to the farmer where they can get maximum profit,” ​said Venu Dantuluri​, co-founder of Aqua App. “The features of the app will include weather reports, prevailing market conditions, and price alerts of the aqua feed along with locations market as well as improve input cost efficiency that could yield big results.”

A​qua​ ​App aims to tap the 75,000 strong aqua farmer networks in AP and tap farmers in Odisha and West Bengal, thereafter.
