Farmer's Name: Mr. Ramesh Bhaskar Uphade

Region: Nashik, Maharashtra

Crop: Grape

Mode of Irrigation: Drip

On one of his friend’s recommendations, Shri Ramesh Uphadeji installed the Fasal device. On the installation day, he was supposed to spray the fields according to his planned schedule but Fasal's alert system came in handy in predicting rainfall on that day which led to saving of his spray cost. The prediction of rainfall was perfect, Fasal’s device helped him prepare a precise irrigation schedule. Earlier he used to irrigate his fields every 4-5 days, post-installation he is irrigating after 7-8 days. Rameshji feels if all of the farmers in his neighbouring community install the device all of them would be collectively benefited from accurate prediction.
