In 2016, fertilizer consumption for India was 165.8 kilograms per hectare. Fertilizer consumption of India increased from 100.3 kilograms per hectare in 2002 to 165.8 kilograms per hectare in 2016 growing at an average annual rate of 3.81 %.
The chemical price can vary from 250 rupees to 2000 rupees per kg depending upon the specific chemical being used. So on an average an Indian farmer spends between 41500 to 332000 rupees per year on each hectare of arable land.
Farmonaut identifies those areas of land where the crop growth is not normal. Farmer can apply fertilizers, chemicals, insecticides, pesticides, plant growth regulators etc. only in
those areas where the crop growth is not normal. By using
remote sensing results provided by Farmonaut, a farmer can save at least 30% on chemical consumption per year.
So for every one hectare of land, farmer can save at least between 12000 (~ $160) and 95000 (~ $1300) rupees per year.
