Webinar on Farmer - Friendly Real Time Data Driven Precision Agriculture The Road to Self-Reliant India - Sep 17, 2020

About the Topic :

The issues on climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages and many more topics related to agriculture need immediate attention for the food security of more than 1.7 billion Indians by 2050. Minimal but accurate use of water, fertiliser, pesticides and monitoring important soil & micro-climate parameters are the most important factors for Precision or Smart Farming. Most farmers understand & feel the need of it, collection of data and data analytics requires trained acumen and it is not common-grower-friendly. 

 

KonceptogenAgro, a technical collation with Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay (IIT-B), has taken the initiative to address the Precision Farming issue in India. To this effort, “geoBHUMI” – First Ever Non-Contact Mode Real Time Soil Moisture Management Device based on DSR Principal has been conceptualised & innovated by Prof. T. Kundu & his student, Dept. of Physics, IIT-B and developed, manufactured & marketed by KonceptogenAgro. The device “geoBHUMI” is developed to collect four most important Micro-Climate parameters, namely Soil Moisture Content, Soil Temperature, Air Humidity and Air Temperature of the field in real time and store these data in Cloud computing environment. Analysis of these data are made available on farmer’s finger-tip accessible anytime from anywhere either on computer or mobile through the customized farmer-friendly developed Website. This device is the need of the hour for Indian Agricultural scenario to minimize over-irrigation and thereby, to save ground water, to save electricity, to improve plant & soil health and thus, to improve crop yield and profit. 

Topics to be Discussed :

Advancement of technologies in different fields especially in photonics and information technology is the key factor for introducing smart farming, the need of the hour in Indian perspectives.

Real time data driven agricultural practice rather than traditional irrigation is the urgent requirement of the Indian farmer to prevent India to face the extreme water scarcity by 2030.
