Cheruvu

Cheruvu aims to build resilient and sustainable villages by employing data science to enhance small farmer decisions in developing countries. They are currently collecting spatially and temporally high resolution data on soil quality (soil tests), climate (weather stations), and farm management practices (field managers) from cotton farmers in South India. Cheruvu is also obtaining satellite imagery to calibrate farm practices. Cheruvu is also facilitating soil tests for participating farmers and providing nutrient management advice based on scientifically proven best practices by working with local agricultural scientists in return for data from the farmers.
