Sujala : A milestone on Satyukt’s mission to bridge the gap between research and practice

Last Updated on

Satyukt analytics is about to complete it’s one year of successful operation. Seeing our calendars dotted with accomplishments and our shelves bursting with honors, we know deep down, that our successes were possible only because of the trust of our clients and the dedication of our team. On its mission of bridging the gap between research and practice, Satyukt analytics worked on several government projects in collaboration with the premier academic institutes of India. One of its kind is “Sujala” watershed project of the government of Karnataka.

Sujala is a watershed development project adopted by the government of Karnataka to tackle drought. Satellite soil moisture data coupled with ground surveys are proposed to be used as a tool for drought-proof farming. Satyukt analytics along with other academic institutes has developed land resource inventory (LRI) for nearly 14 lakh hectares. This allows farmers to choose the right kind of crop to be grown based on the soil and thus can practice drought proof farming.
