Project Summary
Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

To reduce the labor cost and modernize the traditional agriculture for the purpose of clearing weeds in farmlands and creating breach in leveled lands by the means of wireless mini electric powered tiller.

WHAT IF - Inspiration: Write one sentence that describes a way that your project dares to ask, "WHAT IF?"

Today there are diesel powered vehicles (tractors, tillers) to clear weeds in farmlands and create breach in leveled lands. These diesel machines have large size and cannot be used to clear weeds among small crops. but we can....
About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

instead of using harmful pesticides to remove the weeds in small crop agricultural fields like potatoes, wheras the pesticides are hazardous one which eill be contaminated in to our foods and becomes poisonous and also leads to the cancer.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

we are implementing an small electricaly powered wireless mechanical machine which will be able to move in between the small crops planted to clear the weeds in small crop agricultural fields like potateos.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

Tractors can be used in big agricultural lands where there is a need to remove the weeds in between the rhizome plants. But in small and very small agricultural lands, the tractors cannot be used to remove the weeds in between the rhizome plants. A poor farmer cannot buy and use the tractor in his agricultural land for remove the weeds in betweenthe rhizomes, since the cost of the tractor is very high. In such time, our small agribot plays a vital role in helping that farmer in removing the weeds in between the rhizomes.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

electrical dc motors are used for this purpose of removing weeds by the means of baterry powered .

Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?

with in 15 months we will achieve our desired impact by implementing our product in to the market where as in all agricultural fields because of its cheapest cost.
Sustainability

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

if other resources will be ready to help for our idea we will able to implement our idea to this society in short period of time by the means of production.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

All small crop agricultural fields will be the market place for this project in all over the world.
