We have helped 100,000+ farmers and monitored 1 Million+ hectares of farmland worldwide! We are assisting companies like Godrej Agrovet Limited, ITC Limited, Coromandel International Limited, Troforte Innovations (Australia), Fashion For Biodiversity (Germany), Textile Technologies Group (Uzbekistan), LinxAg (Nigeria) and so many more!

Through Farmonaut platforms (android, iOS or web-app) farmers and businesses can select fields and identify the regions of the fields at which the crop condition (growth, water stress, soil health) is not normal. They can also use our API to provide satellite data to their user base.

They also receive vegetation water stress, evapotranspiration, and soil organic carbon data on top of the weather forecast data from the nearest weather station. We provide uninterrupted satellite data even during cloudy weather through radar sensors. (https://farmonaut.com)

This system has done area estimation for paddy in several districts of MP and Bihar as well. The Area estimation for several crops and plantations such. We have already received Crop Area Estimation Requests from various international locations.

The year 2023 is going to be filled with more excitement and will have more milestones to achieve. We thank everyone who has been a part of this journey and has shown support for our work. From the entire team of Farmonaut, we wish everyone a very Happy New Year 2023!
