Krishi Jagran: Indian startup collaborates with Google.org to deploy Artificial intelligence to prevent crop damage. “Agriculture supports 70% of rural households in India, with 80 percent of smallholder farmers (those with two hectares or less) accounting for the majority . Cotton, India’s third-largest agricultural output after rice and wheat, is cultivated by approximately 6 million people. It’s prone to pests in particular: A particularly ravenous-type insect killed half of Maharashtra’s cotton crop in 2017, the country’s second-most populated state. Wadhwani AI, an Indian non-profit firm, has partnered up with Google’s philanthropic arm in its first endeavor in Asia to assist farmers avoid such tragedies and thereby enhance crop yields and revenues.”
