Farmalytics seeks to enable farmers to make data-driven decisions in their daily farming practices, thereby ensuring a sustainable and consistently profitable model of agriculture. Through the use of on-field sensors that measure important parameters vital for crop growth and data analysis of the sensor data, we provide actionable information in several local languages to the farmers through both a web application and a mobile app.
