Millions of farmers in the world each year face loss of their crop. It’s mainly due to crop disease or environmental problems like nature of soil (pH), poor quality of air, and excessive or very low moisture in soil. To get cure from these problems, farmers need to know the fertilizer they need to spray according to the condition of the soil and also the amount of water needed everyday for his crop with respect to the temperature, moisture and humidity. More than 50% of the people's occupation in the world is farming and we need a innovative solution, which is affordable and can be implemented in the current scenario. Also the selling price of crops from the farmers keep changing which is not known to the farmer which leads to selling goods at a lower cost What will be end final product? The idea is to make a hardware + mobile app which could be used by farmers, can update farmers with any issues with their farms and can analyse amount of sunlight, rain, soil moisture, pH and can suggest best fertilizers according to the data from the sensors. It can also compare the data with the local weather data for that GPS location. The app will also have real-time updated selling prices of crops for the farmer.
Our target is to bring this to 20% as 10% of the loss is due to factors likeover or low soil moisture, soil pH, and crop diseases. We want to create a sustainable world by developing urban farming.
