Upajj Soil Health Card is an endeavor to map soil nutrition of India, guided under the grand vision of Pradhan Mantri Soil Health Card Scheme.
Pradhan Mantri Soil Health Card Scheme is meant to give each farmer soil nutrient status of his holding and advice him on the dosage of fertilizers and also the needed soil amendments, that he should apply to maintain soil health in the long run.
What does the app do?
This app helps to provide Soil Laboratories and Soil Testing Centers a platform to regularly digitally update Farmer's Soil Samples, results of which can be received by the farmer on their Upajj Mobile App. Regular dosage and amendments advice can also be provided through this app, which will be timely read by the farmer and applied on his farms.
What are the benefits of this App ?
This app helps to save reams and reams of paperwork and man-hours required to fill in more than 14 crore of soil samples every year in our country.
Further, more often than not, farmer has difficulty in identifying the GPS coordinates of the soil sample he has taken. Using this app, farmers can accurately measure and automatically send the data to the lab tester.
This provides a huge opportunity to map soil nutrition based on geo positioned data, and helps the government to geospatially analyse the soil nurtition data across the country.
What is a Soil Health Card?
Soil Health card is a printed report that a farmer will be handed over for each of his holdings. It will contain the status of his soil with respect to 12 parameters, namely N,P, K (Macro Nutrients), S (Secondary-Nutrient), Zn, Fe, Cu, Mn, Bo (Micro-Nutrients) and pH, EC (Electrical conductivity) and OC (Organic Carbon).
Based on this, Soil Health Card will also indicate fertilizer recommendations and soil amendment required for the farm.
How can Soil Laboratories representatives use this App?
Representatives of Soil Laboratories can download this app and register themselves using this app. Whenever farmer brings to them a sample, they can test it using the patented soil testing machine (more details on upajj.com) or the existing setup, and can update the results for that particular farmer using this app. Representatives can also fill in the dosage and recommendations using this application.
If the farmer has downloaded the Upajj app (available on play store), the results will be directly shown to the farmer.
What are the costs for the App ?
The app is for FREE for soil laboratories to download and update farmers data. The Upajj app for farmers to receive soil data results and recommendations is also free.
