In a move towards transforming agriculture, Satyukt Analytics has unveiled a collaboration with Grama One Centres, an initiative of the Government of Karnataka.

This partnership signals a breakthrough in Satyukt's efforts to advance precision farming by making satellite-based solutions accessible to farmers across Karnataka.

At the heart of this collaboration is introducing the Sat2Farm mobile app, a tool designed to provide real-time data to farmers. This application gives farmers crucial information on soil health, moisture levels, crop conditions, pests, and diseases. Leveraging satellite-based technology, Sat2Farm offers insights, enabling farmers to optimise resource usage, select appropriate crops, and manage pests and diseases.

The collaboration between Satyukt and Grama One Centres aims to usher in a new era of agriculture, blending technology and expertise to empower farmers and ensure sustainable farming practises.

The GramaOne programme, initiated by the Government of Karnataka to deliver citizen services directly to villages, acts as a comprehensive assistance centre.

This collaboration ensures seamless access for rural citizens to Sat2Farm's agricultural services, bridging the urban-rural divide and bringing the advantages of satellite remote sensing technology directly to the doorstep of farmers.

The launch event for business-to-customer (B2C) services through GramaOne centres in Tumakur district witnessed the presence of guests, including Mr Madan Mohan, KAS, Mr Manjunath Reddy of the Directorate of Electronic Delivery of Citizen Services (EDCS) of the Government of Karnataka, and Mr Ram Mohan, District Project Manager of CMS Computers Ltd.

The event, attended by Mr. Manoj, Karnataka State Head for GramaOne Project, along with representatives from 150 GramaOne and KarnatakaOne centres in Tumakur district, showcased Satyukt Analytics, providing knowledge of satellite-based digital farming solutions through the Sat2Farm mobile app.

The digital farming solutions include rapid soil health reports, pest and disease forewarnings, image-based diagnosis, crop-specific practises, soil moisture estimation, irrigation advisories, weather forecasts, and crop health analysis.

In a statement, Sat Kumar Tomer, Founder and CEO of Satyukt Analytics Private Limited, expressed, "GramaOne is the flagship programme of the Government of Karnataka aimed at delivering Government to Citizen (G2C) and Business to Customer (B2C) services to rural citizens at their own village. Satyukt is pleased to provide its Sat2Farm B2C services through GramaOne throughout the Karnataka state."

Notably, Satyukt Analytics delivers knowledge of satellite-based digital farming solutions through its Sat2Farm mobile app, covering rapid soil health reports, pest and disease forewarnings, image-based diagnosis for pests and diseases, crop and location-specific packages of practises, satellite-based soil moisture estimation, irrigation advisories, 15-day weather forecasts, and satellite-based crop health analysis.

This collaboration signifies a step towards democratising access to advanced agricultural technologies, ensuring that the benefits of precision farming reach every corner of the state, and empowering farmers to enhance their farm productivity and economic well-being.
