AI based Prediction Models

Development of weather & Satellite (agro-met products) based forecast models (statistical / machine learning technique), database designing and web based system for crop yield and  pests & diseases in target crops. Prediction of future scenarios of key pests of target crops for their distribution and abundance. Image Analysis for identification of pests and diseases based on CNN (Convolution Neural Network) with different activation function are being developed. The developed forecast models were converted into web based system.
