Why Farmonaut's Database is One of the Most Trusted Database
Farmonaut always strives to think from a farmer’s perspective to keep building the right solutions for the community. One of such steps is the development of Farmonaut Database. We have collected farming data from different government approved sources, analyzed them and refined it to bring the best formatted information available to the farmers.
The government database is a result of rigorous research of several years which includes information about what insecticide, pesticide, and/or plant growth regulator should be used for a given crop. However, the database is openly available in the format of a huge document file with hundreds of pages. It is really unreasonable to expect a farmer to download this large document and scroll through hundreds of pages to identify what the potential problem is with their crop.
Thus, the first thing we did is to sanitize this government approved database, and present it to the farmers in a user-friendly manner.
The segregated database is accessible through our android app and contains government approved information about 100+ crops, 300+ problems and 150+ chemicals (pesticides, insecticides, plant growth regulators etc.). The database includes very specific details of chemical usage such as Quantity, Formulation (g/ml)% and Dilution in water (L).
The Farmonaut database is presented in a fairly accessible form. A farmer can simply click on whether they want to check the information about a crop, a disease/problem or a government approved chemical.
If a farmer clicks on the “Crops” button and selects a crop from the given list of 100+ crops, he/she can see what government approved solutions they should be using if a certain disease/problem outbreaks in their farming field. For example, if a farmer selects Apple from the given list of crops, the database will show that if the apple crop has the problem of scab, they can use chemicals like: Captan 50% WG, Captan 75% WP, Copper Hydroxide 77% WP, Difenoconazole 25% EC) etc. with their specific details like Quantity, Formulation (g/ml)% and Dilution in water (L) etc.. Similarly, if the apple crop has the problem of Powdery Mildew, they can use chemicals like: Lime Sulphur 22% SC, Sulphut 80% WP etc. with their given specific details.
If a farmer clicks on the “Identified Issues” button and selects a problem/disease from the given list of 300+ problems, he/she can see what government approved solutions they should be using if that disease outbreaks in the given list of crops. For, example, if a farmer selects Black Rot from the given list of 300+ problems/diseases, the database will show that if black rot occurs in Coffee, then they can use Copper Oxychloride 50% WG with the given specific details. Similarly, if black rot occurs in Apple, then they can use Zineb 75% WP with the given specific details.
If a farmer clicks on the “Chemicals” button and selects a chemical from the given list of 150+ government approved chemicals (pesticides, insecticides, plant growth regulators etc.), he/she can see what different crops and different diseases can this chemical be used for. For example, if a farmer selects Zineb 75% WP from the given list of 150+ chemicals, they can see that Zineb 75% WP can be used in Jowar for Red Leaf Spot, Leaf Spot and Leaf Blight with the given specific details accordingly. Similarly, it will also show that Zineb 75% WP can also be in Wheat for Blight and Rust with the given specific details.
The Farmonaut database also gives a farmer an option to upvote the given government approved solution. By doing so, Farmonaut ensures another layer of trust on the provided sanitized database. Furthermore, a farmer can also share the database information on to Farmonaut Discussion Forum and several other Social media networks of their choice. A farmer can also save this information locally to his account for a quicker access through their profile.
At Farmonaut, we jumped one step ahead and added another layer of user friendliness to access our database. We have designed a system which is capable of identifying potential problems with a farmer’s crop just by their voice or text explanation.

The app is available for android on Google PlayStore:
We will keep posting about any such informative information on to our blogs, to help as many people as possible. Farmonaut is built upon a vision to bridge the technological gap between farmers and strives to bring state-of-the-art technologies in the hands of each and every farmer.
