This dynamic alliance marks a significant milestone in agricultural technology, set to revolutionize crop monitoring through hyperspectral technology.

In this partnership with ICRISAT, BharatRohan will have an opportunity to connect with Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs), to offer drone crop monitoring services to uplift farmers' livelihoods and ensure a resilient and sustainable food supply chain. This collaboration creates a unique platform for networking opportunities within the agriculture industry. To foster innovation, BharatRohan will gain access to state-of-the-art office facilities and expert branding counsel. This support will further help BharatRohan establish an esteemed position in the dynamic agricultural sector.

Rishabh Choudhary, CTO of BharatRohan, sees this partnership as a significant step forward in harnessing hyperspectral and multispectral imaging technologies for the benefit of farmers and the entire agricultural industry. "This partnership equips us with the expertise and resources to advance our hyperspectral technology, enhancing the precision and efficiency of crop monitoring. We are not just innovating; we are pioneering a future where agriculture is smarter, more efficient, and more sustainable.

Harshaditya, Remote Sensing Engineer at BharatRohan, emphasized the importance of this partnership, stating, "The R&D on hyperspectral data-driven solutions will be pivotal in developing spectral indices and libraries, essential components in hyperspectral data analysis. The spectroscopy-based hyperspectral technique's ability to detect crop issues even before they are visually apparent will empower us to address challenges such as pest infestations, nutrient management, and precision farming."

Hyperspectral imaging, a cornerstone in collecting crop phenotypic data, enables early disease detection and the identification of crop health. When integrated with drone technology, it becomes essential for weed and disease monitoring, offering applications that range from early disease detection to severity quantification. In collaboration with ABI-ICRISAT, BharatRohan is expanding its research in hyperspectral imagery, aiming to bolster its product suite and reaffirm its commitment to harnessing state-of-the-art technology for sustainable farming and a secure food supply chain. This partnership signifies a significant stride towards revolutionizing agriculture and empowering farmers with innovative solutions.
