THE SMART SOIL

The smart soil is a comprehensive evenetmanagement in crop field.

A dynamic system which is-self nourishing. Autoregulated water cycle.produces maximum crop Sensors to detect water and nutrient status.

Use Case

We made a laboratory trial ,off farm trial and on farm trial.We receive a very positive response.in the case of large farmers the acceptance rate is more than 90 %.it is self regulating and auto nourishing so the the user's expense is reduced and the profit is doubled.One of the farmer in the district purulia ,Westbengal, India said " The main positive part of the Smart Soil is ,we can grow crop other than rainy season.we are growing crop for 3 times in a year without fertilizer and with minimum irrigation." Actually the farmers are the more than half of the total population of the world .They are accepting the zero risk product for future farming.

Potential

CHEMICAL FERTILIZERS USE IN THE AGRICULTURAL FIELD HAS AN ADVERSE IMPACT IN THE ENVIRONMENT . IT LEADS TO ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION ,NUTRITION DEPLETION OF THE SOIL.TO METICULATE THE ADVERSE EFFECT OF THE CURRENT AGRICULTURE WE PROPOSE SMART SOIL SYSTEM. IT WILL HAVE HIGH TECHNICAL IMPACT TO THE AGRICULTURE. 70 % OF THE AGRICULTURAL LAND INCLUDING AFRICA INDIA LATIN AMERICA IS RAIN FED UNDER MONOCROPPING ZONE. OUR SMART SOIL SYSTEM INCREASE CROP INTENSITY DURING RAINLESS SESSION THIS WILL SURELY INCREASE 2-3 TIMES OF THE TOTAL CROP .MONOCROPPING SYSTEM WILL BE TRANSFERRED TO DOUBLE/TRIPLE CROPPING SYSTEM WITH THE RESIDUAL MOISTURE PRESENT IN THE SMART SOIL THIS INSITU WATER CYCLE SYSTEM IS ABLE TO MAKE CHANGE THROUGH OUT THE WORLD

Business Case

Key Partners-Fertilizer company,Government,Scientist Key Activities-Invented high efficient The Smart Soil is our second product .. Value Proposition-To motivate the farmers for using The Smart Soil to increase crop productivity in cost effective manner. Customer Relationships- It is a high efficient high technology based system will be introduced among the progressive farmers . Customer Segments-It will occupy a large share within 5 years. Farmers are the customer posses 63.5 % of world population. Key Resources-Very cost intensive and environment friendly product. Channels-Existing marketing channels. Cost Structure-A cost is fixed for 3 years and as it is changed to mono cropping to tripilled. Revenue Streams-Revenue is generated from cultivator,government.

Objectives:

  1. THE SMART SOIL,A COMPLETE PACKAGE OF PLANT NUTRIENT FOR GERMINATION,GROWTH AND PRODUCTIVITY AT MAXIMUM LEVEL WITHOUT CHEMICAL FERTILIZER.
  2. IT CONSISTS OF DISTINCT LAYERS OF WATER ABSORBENT,SUPER ABSORBENT,NON ABSORBENT MATERIAL MICROBIOLOGICAL CONSORTIUM,BIO POLYMER COATED SEED.
  3. HIGH WATER RETENTION AND WATER MOVEMENT CAPACITY TO COMPLETE A LIFE CYCLE.A SENSOR BASED HIGH TECH SYSTEM TO DETECT THE NUTRIENT&WATER LEVEL

THE SMART SOIL

Humans and domestic animals are totally dependent on food produced by agriculture in the prices which thrives on the soil, we as a student of science will develop a discrete self -sufficient soil system to sustain the environment and increase productivity for the future generations.
We care about the wellness of the agro ecosystem in a holistic manner because this system is being manipulated in such a way which has tremendous advance impact on the environment and the living organism. We focus on the degradation and pollution of soil and soil water .We know that the soil is the source of water and nutrients for the plant growth which is being polluted by overuse of chemicals fertilizers and agrochemicals during last 6 decades. The soil in its present status will not sustain adequate food security for the future generation.
Keeping the focal point in mind we have developed a smart soil system which is auto nourishing in respect of all plant nutrient auto regulating water storage foe optimum plant growth. This smart soil will be composed of microbiological population thriving for nutrient mineralization for their own nutrition and plant nutrient availability. The Smart soil is composed of unique combination of super absorbent bio material decomposable organic matters. A structural support and sufficient microbial activity.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make A smart dynamic Soil System for auto regulated water and nutrient for sustainable crop productivity .We propose a noble Smart soil which is self controlling for holding available water in the crop root zone as an when water is required by the plants .This smart soil will also cater essential plant nutrient from the soil microbiological flora. Smart soil system has a unique physical feature of interchanging micro channels under internal changes and external interference

Our Background

We are the students of Science who want to contribute for the benefit of the agriculture. Agriculture is actually a vast domain which provides total food for sustaining life in the world. We care about the wellness of the agro- ecosystem in a holistic manner because this running system will not sustain for a long.Keeping this in mind we have developed a smart soil system which is auto nourishing in respect of all plant nutrient auto regulating water storage for optimum plant growth. .
