Hello everyone! My name is Gnani, and I live in the bustling city of Chennai. Today, I’d like to share the story of our journey from dreamers to proud owners of an automated farmland in Dharmapuri village, located in Theni district.

The Dream

For a long time, we had a vision of turning our leased lands into a beautiful, productive farmland. However, the practicalities of managing a farm from Chennai seemed daunting. Irrigating the coconut farm, finding reliable labor, and maintaining the land were all significant challenges that kept postponing our dream.

The Challenge

Managing the farm remotely was not easy. Labor issues were particularly troublesome; some workers would either not work effectively or leave abruptly, causing delays and frustration. The task of irrigating the coconut farm was especially difficult, and we realized that traditional farming methods would not suffice.

The Turning Point

In our quest for a solution, we turned to Google and found Mobitech. We reached out, and the Theni Zone Manager, Mr. Vignesh, responded promptly to our query. He proposed a comprehensive plan to automate our farm, starting with planting a coconut plantation and installing an advanced irrigation system.

The Transformation

With Mobitech’s guidance, we embarked on a six-day journey to transform our land. Here’s a step-by-step look at what we accomplished:

  1. Deep Ploughing and Land Leveling: We began by preparing the soil, using deep ploughing and a rotavator to level the land.
  2. Drip Irrigation System: We installed a state-of-the-art drip irrigation system, along with an irrigation motor and automation equipment.
  3. Planting Coconut Trees: Within six days, we completed the setup and planted the coconut trees.
  4. Automation Setup: Over the next six days, we fine-tuned the automation system, ensuring it was ready for efficient operation.

A New Era of Farming

Now, we can irrigate our farm from Chennai, monitoring and managing everything virtually. Each plot receives 15 minutes of irrigation, ensuring that all crops are healthy and thriving. Our farm operates without the need for hired labor, thanks to the fully automated system installed by Mobitech.

Benefits of Automation

  • Labor Independence: Automation has eliminated our dependency on labor, allowing us to irrigate at any time, even at night, which is beneficial for the plants as they absorb less water.
  • Water and Energy Efficiency: Night-time irrigation saves a considerable amount of water, and the reliable electricity supply ensures uninterrupted operation.
  • Stress-Free Operation: The system is equipped with numerous sensors to manage both the motor and drip irrigation, ensuring smooth and efficient functioning without the worry of voltage fluctuations or errors.
  • Cost-Effective: Although there was an initial extra cost for automation, it’s a one-time investment that pays off by saving water, energy, and labor costs.

Gratitude

This project, which once seemed like a distant dream, has become a reality thanks to Mobitech. Special thanks to Mr. Vignesh and his team, as well as customer support from Mr. Jaiyanth, for their exceptional support and dedication. Their efforts have made it possible for us to achieve a stress-free and efficient farming operation from Chennai.

Seeing our farm flourish and knowing that we can manage it remotely brings immense joy and satisfaction. This transformation has not only fulfilled our dream but has also set a new standard for modern farming practices.

Thank you, Mobitech, for making our dream come true!


I hope this story inspires other farmers who are facing similar challenges. Automation is not just a convenience; it is a transformative tool that can revolutionize farming, making it more efficient and sustainable. If you have a dream, pursue it, and with the right support, you can turn it into reality.
