Building Sustainability with Technology

Increasing food demands due to high rates of population growth and major changes in political, economic and social systems have created an urgent need to develop new and revise many existing agricultural systems and practices. India is characterized by a high population with a phenomenal growth rate. The restless onslaught of demographic pressures on India’s natural resources has however put a question mark on the stability and sustainability of Indian agriculture.

Now, more than ever, decision makers at all levels need an increasing amount of information to help them understand the possible outcomes of their decisions and develop plans and policies for meeting the increasing demand of food requirements without damaging the natural resources base. At the policy level, India is slowly but surely moving towards precision agriculture.

Only the cost has been high so far, before Stesalit arrived with SXagro.

Agriculture is essentially a spatial phenomenon which is not independent of location. GIS is the tool and technology that handles various spatial databases. This spatial information technology allows you to examine and analyze a wider range of agricultural related resources such as soil, weather, hydrology, various socio-economic variables simultaneously and accurately. Simultaneous examination of these variables in a GIS environment leads to a better understanding of how agricultural systems function and interact over space and time.

SXagro from Stesalit with embedded GIS interface can better organize and analyze spatial data, address the problems related to spatial and temporal variability of various natural resources on which the performance of agricultural systems depends. The system allows the management to gather, analyze, and display spatial data.
