Solution description

Identify pests and diseases while growing crops in an organic environment by a simple mobile application in the AR platform. With available stages and by completing the challenges you can get educated about pests and diseases and how to prevent them in an organic manner.

Solution context

Since the covid 19 pandemic, all undergraduates are grounded in their homes and not able to participate in practicals to have on-hand experience, Also the recent policy regarding the ban of chemical fertilizers and pesticides leads to chaos in the agriculture sector in our country. As agricultural undergraduates, we have to learn how to overcome this issue for that we have to find an alternative solution to educate undergraduates regarding crop growth and challenges.

Solution target group

State universities ( Agriculture, Bioscience and Natural science courses )

Solution impact

Getting digitalized experience on crop growth by giving them the education in a novel way.
