Livecrop’s innovative methodology enables monitoring of any live crop during the crop cycle along with recording of digital foot prints of the live crop on a real-time basis using enabler technologies such as mobile, SaaS, internet, cloud, analytics etc.
The digital foot prints can be used to address the needs of various stakeholders operating in the agricultural domain. This is paperless, scalable and customizable, and enables learning and practice of crop knowledge on a real-time basis by farmers. User experience led design has been used in the design of the mobile interface in local languages. Livecrop’s methodology leads to higher productivity from a given piece of land and optimization of input costs, thereby increasing farmers’ income.
