How AgriBot Can Transform the Agriculture Landscape
Agribot is an agriculture extension that delivers the best practices derived from research at the fingertips of farmers. Agribot empowers the Indian farmer located far and remote with knowledge and latest techniques they can implement in farming.
There is a large variety of farmers in India who do farming on small-scale, medium-scale and large-scale, communicating information to whom is a hefty task. Farmers located in remote villages are specifically less educated about the latest advancements in seeds, manure, fertilizers, pesticides, soil improvement, etc.
How Farmers Can Use It
Farmers growing a particular crop from a particular area will get a dedicated chatbot who will give region-specific answers to their queries. Their answers will be based on various parameters like weather, soil, and peculiarities of that region.
Access the chatbot on Facebook
The farmer will simply ask their question in their language through Facebook messaging and get the answer in their language.
Smartphones and the internet are at their cheapest and affordable even by poor farmers. AgriBot aspires to be useful to farmers by providing them useful information easily within a few taps.
Presently, AgriBot is limited to Facebook but hopes to expand to WhatsApp once it opens its libraries. When implemented on WhatsApp, farmers of the same regions can form groups for discussion and sharing important information.
AgriBot is different from standard computerized help given to farmers where they press 1, 2 or other options until they find the solution they were looking for. This project, on the other hand, seeks to make getting help simpler and as human as possible.
