Girish Badragond came to know that visually-impaired farmers in Vijayapura, Karnataka, had to lease their lands because they couldn’t farm it themselves. After this incident, Girish decided to create a machine called ‘Blind Farming Technology’ which includes a digital stick equipped with a sensor that detects the moisture content, nutrition level, and temperature of the soil. The information is announced on an audio system.

Girish said to a Source “The farmer can walk around his field holding the digital stick to get updates. Apart from that, the machine includes sensors that are installed under the soil to collect various crop-related information. The audio system is installed on different parts of the farm depending on the size, and it works on solar power. There is also an irrigation system that will automatically water the crops when there is a drop in the soil moisture level. Even in the absence of the farmer, the work continues. This technology will also help the farmer save water.”
