• The Central Tuber Crops Research Institute (CTCRI), an ICAR institution, has developed e-Crop, an AI-based IoT device that provides crop-specific agro advisories to farmers through text messages. The device calculates the optimal amount of nutrients and water for crops based on weather and soil conditions, and helps reduce the yield gap and save costs.
  • The technology has been applied to cassava, sweet potato, elephant foot yam and banana, and can be adapted to other field crops. The technology was recognized as one of the best technologies for the horticultural sector in 2022-23 by the ICAR.
