What inspired the team is a quote "Whiskey Is for Drinking; Water Is for Fighting Over". So we know the importance of water

What it does

DeepWater is a mobile app that allows farmers to irrigate their fields without any expensive equipment. It uses NASA satellite data, weather data and topography to predict daily amount of water needed. that rely on a simple water balance and evapotranspiration calculation as intermediate steps. This level of preciseness can translate to savings of tens of thousands of gallons of water for just an acre of land. Finally, this technology has been encapsulated into an easy-to-use lightweight smartphone application. These are necessities for the widespread proliferation of irrigation management technology around the world, especially to small farmers who cannot afford soil moisture sensors or other irrigation management technology.
