The scenario

In Nepal, most of the important agriculture information is locked or their availability is fragmented and heterogeneous. Systematic archival of data is not available via a single-window, and when it is, drawing useful information from it is challenging. In other hand, intervention to increase crop productivity with pest/diseases control and promoting genetically modified crop are not sufficient in the context of changing climate, population growth and degradation of resources.

Introducing GeoKRISHI

We are developing a digital agriculture infrastructure to democratize information. Our web and mobile platform utilizes government, research and crowd data to automates analysis using geospatial technologies and illustrates the results in easy readable formats at farm level (through mobile app) and at sub-national levels (through web app).

Our vision is to make every farm connected and traceable with an increase in their per acre value. Our goal is to provide context specific contents and filtering out redundant information that may confused farmers otherwise. The broader aim of GeoKRISHI, however is to develop a sustainable open-ended-platform to support entire agriculture cycle by ensuring realistic and simplified content representation.
