About AIP Mobile

The hand-held solution will enable the extension workers to access information on various farmer intervention aspects like accessing complete agronomic information on farmers in the database; remote crop management (RCM) for timely technical assistance; good agricultural practices (GAP) demonstration through embedded videos in the field without the need for internet connectivity; and real-time field survey through the hand-held device.

Using the highly scalable solution with convenient offline capabilities, field level university extension staff can now conveniently access general information on the farmers in their target region; details of their land holding including field shape and size; micro-credit/insurance interventions; soil fertility information; crop Information including sowing, harvesting and inter-cropping; adoption and impact of crop varieties/hybrids developed by the universities; current agronomic practices; pest/disease information; training, demonstration and intervention history and much more.

The field survey application is one of the most convenient tools that will enable the extension executive to follow the field boundaries to automatically capture the size, shape and geo-coordinates of the plot for direct upload to a central database when wireless connectivity is available or it can be saved and uploaded from the extension office later.
