We are what we eat... and whenever we talk about food, we must see how it has been grown. Unscientific farm management is not only making agriculture unsustainable
but also a high amount of pesticides in our food acts as a slow poison against our disease-free life.
So, my research finds the deficiency of water and nutrients in the crop and its precise locations in the farm, so that those areas can be taken care accordingly.
To do so, I use drones to collect images in non-visible and visible range and use them in various physical and mathematical models. These models gave color coded farm maps using which stressed areas can be easily identified.

This scientific farm management is a step towards sustainable future farming... And this will impact not only the present generation but also our future.
