Empower Small Farmers in Developing Countries to Grow More With Better Information
Cheruvu is a data-driven sustainable enterprise that provides site-specific advice to farmers in developing countries. Currently, we work with cotton farmers, combining climate data, soil tests, and farming practices to help farmers make smarter agricultural decisions that reduce input costs and risk while increasing yields. We plan on leveraging machine learning algorithms and anonymized data to reduce costs for farmers while conveying a quality product that helps farmers do more with less.
In our first CHASING GENIUS Challenge, we solicited ideas around three critical issues—environmental sustainability, global health, and feeding our growing population. View the winners and explore all ideas below.
