Agriculture is the backbone of our country and there is a desperate need to upgrade our backbone. We are automating manual farming industry using cutting edge drone technology. A technological solution designed to prevent farmers to come in directcontact with pesticides.
The Project is a complete solution to farming techniques it includes- a smart crop monitoring system and an agricopter (quad copter- drone) to reduce labor in farming techniques.
Smart Agricopter is a quad copter drone with the capacity to carry water and pesticide. Agricopter aims to spray pesticides 10 times faster and with 100% precision at the same cost as manual spraying.
The project also includes smart analysis of crop health and ensures that the entire spraying process is completely autonomous and that the farmer is never exposed to the pesticide. The crop health is monitored and the farmer is notified when ever there is a need to water the crop also informs the change in weather condition.All this information is available to the farmer’s phone so that there is a reduction in labor and smart farming techniques are implemented. WORKING:
The project is divided into two parts – the first part is responsible for monitoring the crop. In this part we are using temperature sensor, humidity sensor, methane sensor to know about the soil environment condition, also we are using soil moisture sensor to detect the need of watering the crop on time and sensing the real time data to the user on the application platform. The second part of the project deals with the condition when there is a need of watering the crop for that purpose we are making a Agricopter which is a quad-copter drone which will automate the manual watering system, this will carry water or pesticide to spray on the crop whenever required and reduces labor, in the end we are a making a smart storage system to store the grain safely and protect the food grains from harsh temperature condition by monitoring the temperature of the storage house and also system includes anti-theft system.
