Title: Nano Ganesh
Organization:Ossian Agro Automation
Source:Ossian Agro Automation

Nano Ganesh is a GSM mobile based remote control system exclusively for the use with water pump sets in agriculture areas. Nano Ganesh seeks to transform the way farmers manage their water systems by giving them the freedom to turn pumps on and off, from any location, with their mobile phone. A Nano Ganesh instrument along with a low cost mobile phone is connected to the existing starter. A farmer has to dial a number dedicated for a Nano Ganesh set and then punch the on or off code for the control of the pump set. It can be connected to any existing electrical starter and motor pumps. For higher HP pumps, it can be connected along with the protection systems.

Outcome/Benefits: Nano Ganesh allows farmers to check the availability of electricity to the pump and verify the on and off status of its operation. Both of these features offer cost-saving benefits to farmers who otherwise may not be able to shut their pumps off before their fields have become overly saturated. This is important for two reasons. One is that over-watering can lead to soil erosion and nutrient depletion. The second reason is that the inability to remotely shut-off water pumps leads to unintentional water and electricity waste. With the help of Nano Ganesh, farmers will be able to conserve water and electricity more effectively. This will minimize the environmental and financial costs of farming.

Commercially tested: Yes
