" My love for machinery has driven me to launch an agritech startup named Agrivator.
Agrivator is a project designed to cater the demands of the world’s food sector with Advanced Automated Irrigation countering two major threats agriculture faces today: the lack of rainfall and depleted underground water table. We combat this crisis with a highly localised and systematic study on humidity of the concerned plot. This is a field of high relevance as it will remain in full demand as long as life sustains on earth.
I believe that this will be a true eye-opener for all innovators in the field of agriculture as it demands social responsibility and ethics. It will reinforce their concern for the mankind and arouse a new train of thought. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Agrivator
AGRIVATOR is an advanced automated irrigation system which finds the amount of water required for the plant using different parameters and execute it. The measurable goals is to spread the word about preciousness of food and the need to change the thoughts before changing the world among the community which he lives in.
