Open Crop Harvest is a web application which acts as a communication platform between crops experts and farmers. It also allows early detection of diseases and pests with the help of crowdsourcing methodology among farmers and experts, and farmers can get details of the pests and its treatment.

This project is solving the Crop Alert – Learning From the Growers challenge.


This project helps to collect any information about planting, harvest, farmers by making the necessary use of a database, showing a farmers' profile information, their harvest, use of insecticides and pesticides and its effects on crops and harvest, as well as the details of the crops that performs during the season and weather facts.

In addition to that, in developing nations, farmers tend to buy fertilizers and pesticides as per their need without any knowledge of it or just by listening to the big words of the seller. This has lead to some harmful effect on consumer health and hence polluted the environment. To monitor and ban those harmful chemicals used in crops, it is necessary that farmers should provide information about the chemicals they are using and what was the overall crop production by using those fertilizers (positive or negative effect) so that all other farmers can know what are the consequences of using those chemicals. With that available data and authentication, the government can ban in buying and selling of those kinds of harmful chemicals.
