The main purpose of green/poly house is to protect cultivation from biotic (disease-causing organism i.e. insects, pests) and abiotic stresses (climatic factors i.e. Temperature, humidity etc.) which cause a major decrease in production (up to 90%).
A normal greenhouse which costs 200-350 INR/square meter are most common in India (over 90% of total protected cultivation) but it is not that effective because of manual operations and labour requirement. Semi-automatic and normal greenhouses also have some facility like sprinklers, dripping system, fans and pads facility but the overall operation is done manually by assuming climatic parameters manually. It requires good sense and knowledge of climatic parameters as well as physical presence is required every time.
To overcome this scenario, Mobiloitte technologies has made a cost-effective and user-friendly solution with the help of IoT and Information Technology. The solution contains a device loaded with sensors, Wi-Fi router and farmer-friendly bilingual (in English and Hindi) mobile app (iOS and Android version).
