Inspiration

Having no aggregated data for the small holder farmers.

What it does

Farmers are having low productivity due to the lack of proper knowledge of farming. Soil fertility, humudity and temperature sensors will be used to check the fertility of the soil in order for the farmers to make sure the soil is ready for plowing. The location sensors will help us know how big of a land the farmer has. All the aggregated data will help us in getting prepared with the amount of inputs needed for the farmers, the amount of yield to be collected which will eventually help us predict other necessary factors like logistics, insurance and banks.

How we built it

Data collection happens on the field which will be delivered via sms or internet. Which will get to the cloud and get back to the farmer and extension worker via sms or internet.

Challenges we ran into

Financial problems to acquire the sensors, finding agribusiness partners, gathering suitable soil data, finding a project site.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Finding the root cause of our agricultural problems. Hacking the prototype in two days.

What we learned

Micro Services, SMS Gateway, Prezi, RestAPI concept

What's next for Geberew Bersha'lay

Building a prototype for the app, web services and sms gateway.

Healthy, high-quality soil has:

Good soil tilth Sufficient depth Sufficient, but not excessive, nutrient supply Small population of plant pathogens and insect pests Good soil drainage Large population of beneficial organisms Low weed pressure No chemicals or toxins that may harm the crop Resilience to degradation and unfavorable conditions —from Soil Health Training Manual

Soil Fertility Protocol – Introduction In order to grow, plants require sunlight, water, air, heat, and nutrients. Table SO-FE-1 lists the macronutrients (nutrients required in large amounts) and micronutrients (nutrients required in smaller quantities) required for plant growth.
