mrittikā - Fertilizer recommendation software

In most developing countries farmers do not have enough knowledge regarding applying the correct fertilizers for their land. They also do not know the nutrient levels in their soil and end up applying inadequate proportions of fertilizers which eventually leads to poor harvests.

mrittikā has been designed to solve this issue, by helping farmers select the appropriate fertilizers in the correct quantity to enhance crop yield. The software is light weight and requires a soil test to determine the amount of nutrients in the soil.

In order for testing the strength of the software, TSI has initiated Project Harvest in different locations in Bangladesh, for analyzing the effectiveness of the software when used in the field level.

A portion of land from farmers in Kushtia, Bogura, Netrokona and Dhaka were used, with the software generating fertilizer recommendations for each farmer’s land. mrittikā helped Md.Alam, wheat farmer from Kushtia, achieve 47% greater harvests and 15% decline in cultivation expenses. Raju, Belayet and Alam Pk were other farmers whose crop harvests were greater than previous years.
