Abstract:
    Plant health is an important source of income of a number of countries and can seriously reduce yield and economic returns for farmers and ultimately reduce the national income of a Country.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    1. About 25% of Pakistan's agriculture accounts for about 21% of GDP and 43% of the labor force. 2. Wheat production stood at 25.492 million tonnes during 2017-18 recording a decline of 4.4% over the 26.674 million tonnes last year. 3. The shortfall in productions is due to nutrient deficiency.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   1. Farmers (their crops yield will increase). 2. Pakistan's increased food demand can be met. 3. It will improve Pakistan's economy.
How will the solution works
    Our method employs NDVI technique.These indexes help to see the amount of light reflected which can be a measure of whether the plant is healthy or not. These indexes utilize the reflected Red Light and Infrared Red Light to calculate an index value. Plants that are missing the essential nutrients or if the pests are attacking them then these indexes will show a smaller value, while the healthy plants will have a higher index value.Finally the calibrated data will be shown on an orthomosaic map.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Other agriculture companies are our competitor. Our solution is different as it, 1. is time efficient 2. has reduced labor force 3. gives good precision
