Welcome to SXagro

SXagro is a clould based portal for geo-spatial agricultural decision support system. Geographic Information System (GIS), Remote Sensing Image Analysis (RSIA), Global Positiong System (GPS), and rugged handhelds like SXtreo for data collection are the components integrated for you to gather real time precise data from the field, analyse the geo-referenced data, and disseminate immediate advisories to the farmers.

Electronic Pest Surveillance, Crop Coverage, and Yield Estimation are few of the features in use by the SXagro customers...

Electronic Pest Monitoring



The Problems

Pest Control: Normally most of the advisories on farming are on pest control and farm diseases, the input data is most of the time a bit dated, or is very much generalized in nature. Often the advisories are through broadcasting or other media which do not reach the farmers who need them at the right time, as a result pest control is many a time ineffective. Also the basis of the advisories is irregular and biased surveys and the surveillance is normally limited to a small area, leading to inaccuracies in advisories given to the farmers. In addition, the manual survey and data collection, collation, analysis and ultimately sharing the pest control measures with the farmers typically takes 21 days, by when the effectiveness of the advisories become much less relevant. As a result, over consumption of pesticides, leading to high costs to farmers with impact to environment, is very common. With this missed opportunity to intervene immediately, pest control advisories are often curative than preventive in nature, and mostly generalized.

Solutions

SXagro is the approved solution by NCIPM
(National Centre for Integrated Pest Management)

Electronic Pest Control:

GPS-based rugged handhelds SXtreo would be used to collect field level data on the pest infections on the crops. Data collected:

  • Type of Pest
  • Severity of infection
  • Location (GPS based)

This data would be transferred to the central database immediately and the administrators would have a centralized geospatial pest infection map on the second day itself which would include the weather forecasts.

The administrators would have a complete analysis of the whole state’s geospatial view of the agricultural situation to take immediate action and send urgent advices to the individual blocks and farmers through SMSes on pest control. With the SXagro from Stesalit the 21 day cycle thus becomes just a two day cycle. Pest control through ePest Surveillance system module of our SXagro solution is the most scientific, advanced and cost effective solution, keeping the challenges of agriculture in India in mind.

SXagro modules:

Data Capture Module:

Data Capture is the interface where all historical data entries are available. All geo- reference data inputs including latitude, longitude, pest intensity, weather data entry (temperature, humidity etc) is captured.

Reporting Module:

Different reports of captured data can be downloaded or viewed using different reporting format such as tabular, graphical and GIS maps

  • Tabular data report can be sorted or customized for download.
  • All Transaction Reports – Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, Annually and with given date range.
  • Reports can be downloaded as Spreadsheet , Graphical (PDF)
  • GIS map reports can be searched according to variables like date range, crop, pest, center, block, village etc.
  • GIS Map will be displayed using Google map API & Ajax technology for faster processing.

Data Analysis Module: This Module will be helpful for Analysis of all captured data inputs. There will be different statistical method for analysis. Using different GIS tools all captured data will be analyzed based on required statistical methods, which will be helpful for users to get advisories for pest management.
