Agriculture is a vital chunk of India’s economy and enables India to rule the world as one of the world’s top two farm producers. The agricultural sector employs practically 41.49 percent of India’s workforce and accords around 19.9 percent of India’s GDP. We express our gratitude to all the farmers who work relentlessly under the scorching sun to keep our nation well fed.
Sai Abhinay Chepuri, a proud B-Tech CSE Verto, Lovely Professional University, through his startup Enviropromise, chases his desire to assist farmers by implementing Artificial Intelligence (AI) to rekindle agricultural practices with the help of newfangled technology. He assists framers to comprehend more and more about organic farming methodologies through AI and also helps sell their produce via his app.
Artificial Intelligence technology can potentially aid in the production of hearty crops, rodent prevention, soil monitoring, standardize plans for farmers, solve agriculture-related queries, and can manage the food supply chain. AI technology can scrutinize jillions of data points generated by pastureland daily. Farmers using AI can monitor a multitude of factors in real-time, such as weather forecasts, temperature, water use, and soil conditions, to help them make better choices. AI systems, for example, assist farmers in optimizing preparation to produce more abundant yields by evaluating the appropriate crop choices, seed choices, and resource utilization.
Precision agriculture is a term used to describe how AI systems can assist in increasing harvest efficiency and accuracy. Precision agriculture employs AI to help in the detection and elimination of plant pathogens, pests, and sense inadequate plant nutrition on farms. Artificial Intelligence can process data from sensors that will identify and target weeds, then determine which herbicides to use within the appropriate buffer zone. AI systems tend to discourage the overuse of herbicides and the accumulation of toxins in our food.
Lovely Professional University encourages its students to promote such transdisciplinary studies, a new paradigm that encourages students to transcend orthodox academic barriers by merging numerous domains into one. The obstacles faced by mankind today are intricate and require a lot more than just simply putting blocks, transdisciplinary studies promote the applications of divergent fundamentals, theories, and hypotheses to solve composite problems. Vertos continue to make breakthroughs and achieve new horizons both nationally and internationally to make our university proud.
