Web Abstract

The proposal aims towards development of a cloud based decision support system that utilizes a framework of microwave satellite observations (soil moisture and crop variables) and a large mesh of IoT enabled soil sensors (moisture) to provide smart solution towards irrigation scheduling and irrigation water management. Big data generated, agronomist and scientist verified recommendations would benefit not only farmers but also provide an early warning real time indicator tool (Mobile app / web) to the regulators and government bodies in terms of monitoring soil moisture in a larger area (Karnataka state). Provisions and capabilities have already been accounted for rapidly scaling the project to a larger area after successful implementation of this pilot project.
