'Make in India' -- for the world
Bangalore, November 17 2014: The India R&D team of Tavant Technologies, a company focused on specialized software development, is enabling farmers in the US to be more productive.
How? By arming them with an iPad app that provides information on soil types, plant nutrition, local weather, water levels and more.
The largest dairy and farming co-operative in the,US, St. Paul(MN)-based Land O’Lakes, has leveraged Tavant’s Indian brains to create a "WinField" tool called R7.
This enables Land O’Lakes’ 3 lakh ( 300,000) partner-farmers to access real-time location-specific data through weather and satellite imagery , helping them to formulate the right farming strategy.
By saving crucial man days of labour, these farmers produce better quality crops at lower prices.
