Brief description

It is battery operated, GPS enabled and connects to cloud. It promotes sustainable farming, mapping of the farm land based on GPS and recommends optimal level of fertilizer based on crop. It results in capture production vis a vis fertilizer utilization, more proactive planning for subsidies and emergencies, generation of employment. It is strongly aligned with vision of Pradhan Mantri Soil Health Card system. The prototypes have been manufactured in small batch and deployed in pilot model to understand the effectiveness.  As per the pilot model, it reduces input cost by 40%, increases yield by 30% and provides the ability to reach out to 8 times more farmers in same time & cost. It has ability to test pH, OC/N, P,K, Ca/Mg, S, Fe, Fe, Mn, Cu, Zn, As, coliform bacteria, Pesticides in soil and dissolved oxygen (DO), free CO2, NH3, PO4, total alkanity, NO2, NO3,H2S in water.
