Farmonaut Overview: 2021-2022

Farmonaut was a vision seen in 2018 to bridge the technological gap between the farmers and their outputs. It also offers a satellite-based crop health monitoring system to agricultural companies to map more than thousands and lakhs of farmers’ fields. Farmanaut uses geotagging to map fields and provide smart data to farmers through its robust and advanced web app. 

As per data, organizations like Godrej Agrovet mapped several thousand field pieces initially using Farmonaut’s technology. The organization had already mapped over several thousand hectares last year.

Ankur Omar, CEO and founder of Farmonaut, said “Geotagging of farmer’s field has become easy, fast and more streamlined. There is an ecosystem of interconnected apps which enables our clients to perform multiple tasks like monitoring data, managing it without going to fields and accessing the data from anywhere across the world. During Covid 19, Farmonaut was a game-changer when it provided flawless data with interoperability that had become a game-changer for the organizations that have bigger pieces of land with huge numbers.” He added, “If flawless data is provided, it helps organizations perform farm-level actions in advance. Several organizations are using this technology. We welcome more to be on board across the world.” 

 

The challenge of agriculture in India is to get support and education for the right crop as per the weather conditions. Remote sensing technology provides data that mitigate challenges cost-effectively.

“We provide support and data to our clients cost-effectively. Indian farmers spend Rs. 42,000 per year on each hectare of land suitable for growing crops. If a farmer uses high processed remote sensing data results, 30% of the expense on chemicals, insecticides, pesticides and plant growth regulators can be saved.” said Aakash Omar, co-founder of Farmonaut.

Aakash Omar added, “We provide updated data, every 2 to 5 days with the resolution of 10m.

 

What data Farmonaut provides, let us figure out in detail.

Crop Health – To monitor crop health using geo sensing technology is a game-changer when it comes to production. Using geo sensing, a farmer can identify underperforming crops. Farmonout does provide support to farmers to take out underperforming crops from trouble. The organization provides farmers’ education for better crop yielding. Expert advice raises farmers’ education that helps them at every step to achieve profit. 

 

Evapotranspiration – Geo sensing technology also brings data to farmers when and where water is highly required for the crops. It also provides data for excess water in a field. 

Monitor evapotranspiration is an important task as it gives an estimate to the farmer that how much the soil contains water. A farmer can regulate the irrigation system as per the requirement of soil. It also identifies the location from where water is getting lost into the atmosphere at a higher rate. 

 

Radar data – A client can question what if there are clouds in the sky, how do we get data of our field then? 

To answer this question, Farmonaut also provides radar data that works even if it is extremely cloudy conditions. Organizations rely on Farmanout as it provides flawless data in harsh atmospheric conditions.

 

Digital Elevation Model – India is an agricultural country. Agriculture is a widespread occupation across the country. Monitoring data in Gangetic plans as well as hilly farms of Uttrakhand shows the commitment towards flawless data representation to our clients in India. Farmonaut uses technology that identifies tropical slopes at a micro-level.

During Covid 19 pandemic productivity and efficiency have been some important issues. In that case, useful information helps to improve farming. Digital Elevation Model is an important geospatial product that provides data on every slope and very useful tool for farming in hilly areas.

 

Colourblind visualization – Farmanout understands that a farmer’s productivity is our utmost priority. The organization treats all its farmers with respect. Farmanout also provides colour neutral satellite data specifically for colour blind users.  

 

Water Stress – Water stress is a key factor in the growth of crops. The app identifies the location where the water stress is low. It provides that data to the farmer by which water circulation can be managed effectively. 

 

Soil Moisture Identification – Breaking some barriers ahead, the app Farmanout also provides services in the identification of soil moisture. It provides data to the farmer where the moisture of the soil is low.

 

Soil Organic Carbon – If the organic carbon level of the soil is in check, fertilization can be done in a controlled way for better yielding. It also identifies the location where the soil organic carbon level is low and high. Experts suggest farmers rotate the fertilizers for a better outcome.

 

Weather Forecast – Conducive weather conditions are an essential part of the growth of crops. Weather is an uncontrollable phenomenon. However, damage to crops can be mitigated if the user knows the forthcoming situation. Farmonaut provides upcoming weather conditions so that farmers can prepare themselves.

 

All the above-mentioned services are being used by individual farmers as well as agricultural organizations.  Several agribusinesses have partnered with Farmonaut to avail satellite-based data for their farmers.

Some big names, who are the prominent clients of Farmonaut, are Godrej Agrovet, LINXAg, ZR3i.com, Crop United, Ubin Core, and Fashion for biodiversity. 

 

In India, very few organizations are putting efforts to change the face of agriculture using advanced technology. Farmonaut is one of them by taking baby steps and empowering farmers with technology.
