Abstract

Agriculture is the backbone of India as a developing country. Most of the people in rural areas practice agriculture as their main occupation. Since ages, they have been practicing traditional methods of farming and they have a wide knowledge about those methods. Nowadays technology have developed so much that farmers are not much familiar with newer agriculture techniques. Tremendous digital data is available related to agriculture but they are not able to access real time to the factual information. The proposed system represents a digital tool in the form of website as well as a mobile application: e-farm with C.R.O.P named as “CropCare” which will help farmers intelligently. It will include services such as crop disease detection with solutions and nearby pesticide vendors, crop yield predictor and recommendation of best crop. Prime focus is to improve the usability of designed ICT tool. Other features would include discussion forum, weather updates and multi-lingual support to user. The ICT tool is designed and implemented with an aim of providing scalability, ease of use and community oriented design. This will reduce the digital gap among farmers towards technology. Increasing the usability of agricultural services by providing a better tool is the prime focus.
