Data, coupled with the farmer’s knowledge and intuition about his or her farm, can help increase farm productivity, and also help reduce costs. However, getting data from the farm is extremely difficult since there is often no power in the field, or Internet access at the farms.
We are seeking original, technologically inventive projects in areas such as the internet of things, intelligent hardware, low-cost sensors, drones, robotics, computer vision and machine learning algorithms, and cloud computing to help address farming challenges anywhere across the world. For example, drones and robots are being used to collect data sets on fields and crops to improve efficiency, health, yield of crops, and to address other farming challenges. AI and sensor data can also be used to predict or detect pest/crop disease, measure cover crop, or monitor crop growth, crop yield, soil tilling practices. Devices can enable data-driven approaches to farm management.
The registration closes on Feb 15, 2021 and finalists will be announced on March 22, 2021.
