About the Project
With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, farmers need sound consultation to help adapt to this new climate. In a joint project with TUMO Labs and Garoon Tech, students will create a mobile application for visual analysis that can detect plant disease symptoms and signs of deficiency. Using this platform, farmers will receive expert advice on the types and quantities of fertilizer needed to overcome any problems. The agronomic consultants, meanwhile, will have new opportunities for employment. The product will first be made available in Armenia prior to scaling up and targeting CIS countries with similar agricultural issues and customer bases.
