The artificial intelligence-driven platform from Bengaluru-based agri-tech startup Fasal is a precision farming solution provider that enables farmers make informed decisions. Through their solution Fasal monitors micro and macro climatic condition, soil parameters, crop stage and growth characteristics, etc. and provides a farm-specific micro-climatic forecast for next 14 days to keep the farmer well prepared for climate oriented risks of the future.

Their service offerings include: micro climatic forecast with high accuracy, disease and pest prediction, irrigation alerts for optimal usage of water and farm finance management and monitoring. These contribute to solving six (6) sustainable development goals (SDGs) which include:

SDG 2 – Zero Hunger: Fasal solutions can enable up to 40 percent increase in yield.

SDG 3 – Good Health and Wellbeing: Fasal solutions can allow up to 60 percent reduction in pesticide usage

SDG 6 – Clean Water and Sanitation: Fasal can possibly reduce water usage for irrigation by 50 percent.

SDG 12 – Responsible Consumption and Production: Fasal solutions promise to improve soil health with less usage of fertilizers.

SDG 13 – Climate Action: Fasal enables the reduction in usage of non-renewable fuel sources.

SDG 15 – Life on Land: Fasal enables accurate usage of fertilizers on land without which the soil could become degraded.

Challenge that Fasal is trying to solve

Farmer’s have no access to farm data to make informed decisions

Farmer’s lack the technical capacity to mitigate environmental risk factors capable of causing low yield, higher costs of production, wastages and lower profit margins. Farmers often find it hard to figure the exact quantity of water and pesticide a crop needs at the right time. There is usually a lot of uncertainty around rainfall patterns, the proliferation of pests and diseases. These environmental risk factors if not mitigated could cause reduction in crop quality, overall farm yield and consequent losses. 

Solution by Fasal

Use of Artificial Intelligence and IoT devices for precision farming

Fasal accomplishes it mission of providing certainty to farming processes through its service renderings. It uses farm level data to predict ideal growth conditions and resource requirements – including irrigation, sprays, fertigation and other preventive measures and notify farmers to take informed decisions. Provision of Fasal, a precision device that enables reduction in water usage for irrigation by up to 50 percent, increase in farm yield up to 40 percent and reduction in pesticide cost up to 60 percent. 

Value Proposition and Key Benefits

Micro climatic forecast: Fasal provides farm-specific micro-climatic forecasts for the next 14 days to keep farmers well prepared for weather risks of the future

Precise irrigation: Fasal provides plot level, crop-specific and crop stage specific irrigation requirements precise to the litre per plant. The system considers aspects such as soil texture, crop, crop-stage, soil water tension, rate of water loss, plant ecology, transpiration etc. to recommend precisely when and how much farmers need to irrigate.

Disease & pest warning: Fasal provides preventive advisories for disease and pest management, informs the farmers which spray they should use and the best time to spray. Fasal tracks the life cycle of various pathogens as well as pests, specific to the crop and crop stage, by monitoring the congenial on-farm micro and macro-climatic conditions and then informs when to take preventive sprays.

Farm finance management:Fasal lets farmers plan, monitor and analyze all activities on their farms in a very simple and intuitive way. It provides real-time insight into daily progress of crops and activities, manages sales, expenses and cash flows to ensure the health of the farm’s finances.

Looking Ahead

With the quest of making precision agriculture easily accessible to farmers worldwide, Fasal is working on reducing the deployment time of the plug-and-play Fasal internet of things(IoT) device from under 15 minutes to under five minutes on farms without the need for additional support from the Fasal team. Fasal also intends to expand to other geographies where farm profiles and climatic conditions are similar.
