Objective:  The firm should provide services by installing suitable equipment’s for: 1. measuring standing water level in rice crop using suitable sensor and to measure moisture content of soil using soil suction sensors for all crops; and subsequently to determine irrigation schedule (both timing and quantity of irrigation) using algorithms; 2. Mobile based pump control system and a decision support system to implement irrigation scheduling and monitor the pump operation remotely using mobile. 3. Monitor the groundwater levels, rainfall and volume of water extracted using automatic instruments 4. Provide cloud based application, mobile apps, training modules and videos for dissemination to the farmers.
