the problem

Farmers in India often grow crops that are

  • not ideal for the given weather and soil conditions
  • not profitable since the value on the world market is too low (they have no access to market information such as demand and prices). 

Our project adresses the following Sustainable Development Goals :

the solution

An app that uses weather, soil, and price data to recommend crops that maximize yield and actually turn a profit. Evidence that growing high-value crops is a way to escape poverty from a 2015 paper: “[…] crop diversification into high-value crops (HVCs) can be a possible strategy to improve livelihood. […] we establish that households diversifying toward HVCs are less likely to be poor, the biggest impact being for smallholders.” (Birthal, 2015)
