“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 localized 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.”
