Idea Name: Smart Agriculture
Slogan: we do it smartly
Startup Domain: Agriculture
Abstract:
    Automating the indoor agriculture system using IOT for producing organic crops in controlled weather conditions while minimizing the water and pesticide usage while maximizing crop yield
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    The severe water shortage in Pakistan is causing extreme damages to agriculture and other industries. Harsh weather conditions and use of pesticides is also an issue. There is a need to automate the indoor agriculture system to prevent water loss and minimize the use of pesticides.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   It should be kept in mind that agriculture industry accounts for 26% of Pakistan’s GDP. So, the beneficiary of our product will be the 70% population of Pakistan that is related to agriculture, directly or indirectly.
How will the solution works
    Our solution is made up of grow lights and a simple arduino kit in a makeshift greenhouse. The arduino kit consists of humidity and temperature sensor, soil moisture sensor, and an automated water pump. The arduino will send live data from sensors to the cloud where it will be visible to the user. The user can then turn the lights and the water pump on or off. Moreover, it will also have an IR camera that will transmit live feed to the user to enable the user to remotely monitor the crop as well
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    In Pakistan, there are no competitors currently as the solution is not applied in Pakistan before. The indoor agriculture has yet to become an industry in Pakistan.
