Capability and features
Harvesto’s main customers are government departments and agribusinesses who are establishing labs, and farmers in need of soil tests. Revenue is generated by selling the digital soil testing machine (product) and further supplying chemicals for soil testing.
The lab tests 14 parameters of soil & recommends fertilizer dose for 100 crops, and can be connected to a mobile phone or computer. It has 6 hours battery back-up & solar charging facility. Other solutions in the market mostly cost around 20-50 times more than Harvesto’s solution and some of them do not do the quantitative analysis of soil and are difficult to use.
