Baku, Azerbaijan, June 1

"The average farmer of Kazakhstan possesses the land within 500-10,000 ha and up to this point farmers still daily drive around the property or walk on foot to control the processes of growth, ripening of crops and groundkeepers which cost both a lot of time and money. Furthermore, the problem areas could be invisible to the human eye," reads the message.

"EGISTIC lets the farmer to put in the cadaster land number and to choose the necessary analysis for the required period and, just like in the constructor, to receive the map with the needed information layers: vegetation, humidity, nitrogen, chlorophyll, snow level and so on. Then the farmer chooses the information, analyses it and determines the areas that are in need of attention. After that, the farmer goes to the selected area instead of driving around the whole property," the press office said.

The founder of the startup Zhandos Kerimkulov used to work as a specialist on processing space photographs for State structures.

Currently the user office provides the following information: unified map with indexes of vegetation, crops’ health, soil and plant humidity; the soil surface temperature, soil acidity map, relief map, snow level map for February 2019 and the order history.

In the future the implementation of the free services such as meteorological data that includes weather forecast for the following nine days, management of the agronomist log, the guide of crop’s diseases Is expected.
