UX14 - Farmer App For Accessing Real Time Information For Enabling Decisions (FAARIED) (Ramarao Ravulaparthy)

There has been a decline in agricultural input and there is a need for accelerating the same. Though green revolution II is an answer for this, it needs to be supplemented by Information Access to farmers across the country for effective decision making and implementation. Information Technology has to be leveraged for this in a big way through using the most widely available platforms. Some technology initiatives exist in some parts of the country as isolated islands. A nationwide or a statewide Information Technology platform to disseminate the real time and wholesome information to enable the farmer is largely missing at many places. Due to its widely spread reach mobile platform becomes a preferred one. The solution for the above need is designing an app that enables the user (farmer) to access the relevant information provider/s and informing the geographic location ID of his farm/land that has been given to him and solicit the required information from them. In turn the information provider will give him suggestions/ answers/recommendations along with alternatives to the farmers on the information sought through voice mail/SMS including local languages.
