Introduction

By 2050, the global population is expected to increase by almost 40% to 9.6 billion people. In order to feed this drastically increasing population, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) predicts that the agriculture industry will need to produce 70% more food while only being able to use 5% more land. Since most land suitable for agriculture is already farmed, this growth must come from higher yields. Some Advance Agriculture techniques are required to maximize the yield.

The useful information for farming like Weather Forecasting, Satellite Imagery, expertise knowledge on crop diseases, soil nutrients, fertilizers and pesticides etc. are scattered between various entities/organization. Thus a platform is required which can provide the useful insights generated from various sources to the farmers at the right time. Our platform, Locate365 leverages the AI/ML Technologies to generate the insights from the data points gathered from various sources (i.e. sensors, drones etc.).

Key benefits of Digital Agriculture Platform:


Features

Weather Forecasting

  • Help them to plan efficiently, minimize costs and maximize yields. When to sow, when to harvest, when to fertilize the field etc.

Crop Diseases

  • Help farmers to know the possible diseases that crop might catch and their symptoms

Soil Nutrition Status

  • Knowledge of Soil Nutrients value will help farmers to decide – which fertilizer to use – which crop to grow etc.

Fertilizers and Pesticides

  • Advice on how and when to use fertilizer and pesticides as per the soil nutrition values
