Aims & objectives of project:
(i) Collect data of productivity by season and by location on the farm
(ii) Collect data on water consumption by location and crop
(iii) Collect data on overall production cost
(iv) Analyse production data to compare productivity by season and compare productivity by area to analyse how different inputs and management techniques impact production
(v) Analyse differences between production and sales quantities reflecting loss to damage due to pests, harvesting practices (time and technique). This would help in planning for such losses and build resilience.
(vi) Compare production value with water consumption and calculate water consumption/unit production
(vii) Compare production value with expenses and calculate cost/unit production for different areas and crops
(viii) Sharing this information within the farm and with other farms in Auroville for better planning and developing and sharing practices for optimum production and resource management.
(ix) Sharing this information within Auroville to better understand the resources required to grow food for the community and contribute to the conversation on food security.
(x) Sharing this information with farms and communities outside of Auroville demonstrating a system for measurement and analysis for a farm developed from scratch.
