Pest Management for Cotton Farming

The CottonAce solution guides smallholder cotton farmers on the optimal time to take preventive action and protect their farm against avoidable crop losses due to pests such as the Pink and American bollworm.

“Our project on Climate Resilient Agriculture is providing technological solutions to small holders to cope with climate change. We have tested the AI tool developed by Wadhwani AI to monitor Pink Bollworm incidence on Cotton with participation from farmers, who found it helpful to take timely decisions. PoCRA is scaling the AI application to five districts this season to benefit of more cotton growers. We hope the tool will be extended to other important crops as well in the near future.”
