February 22-23, @KCE, Coimbatore
Smart Agrothon aims to bring together the fresh perspectives, disruptive approaches, cutting-edge research and knowledge of smart-thinking people from all over India who are interested in tackling some of the biggest challenges related to Agriculture.
This event will catalyze the technology based solutions that can help the farmers to overcome their difficulties and transform farm returns. Participants shall develop ideas and build prototypes to solve key challenges faced by the farmers during crop production.
Prediction of climate condition using intelligence in Data science
Design a web based application to make a bridge between farmers and consumers.
To protect the Soil, recycle the non compostable material to recreate a useful product.
Design a non lethal secure monitoring system to protect the crops from animals.
Develop a system to monitor and manage the water quality.
AI based guiding system to suggest best suited crop based on nature of soil and environment.
Smart irrigation systems and innovative technologies for soil erosion and contamination control.
Modern technologies to reduce food miles in agriculture.
Energy recovery and innovative products from agro-residues.
Sustainable technologies for farm operations.
Alternative technologies to replace manual devices used in agriculture and allied activities.
Crop monitoring, Soil surveil, Production enhancement and Estimation of crop yield.
Carbon Foot Print and in-house climate changes
Agri data monitoring and Digitalization for business intelligence.
