C1 : To design and develop a predictive analytical model which can analyze large sets of existing data to accurately predict the future demand of agricultural products in a warehouse and hence to avert out-of-stock situations as well as overstocking thus achieving Inventory Optimization.

Challenge Description
A warehouse management system (WMS) is software and processes that allow organizations to control and administer warehouse operations from the time goods or materials enter a warehouse until they move out. Predictive analytics can help companies optimize existing processes, better understand customer behavior, identify unexpected opportunities, and anticipate problems before they happen. Through building or creating a predictive model for inventory/Data warehouse the model is able to predict demand for goods based on past customer purchase or seasonal requirements. Demand Forecasting: It plays a critical role in inventory management. If you can accurately predict the future demand of products in your warehouse, you can ensure you hold the correct stock to maximize sales potential and profit. Inventory Optimization: Simply, inventory optimization is a way of ensuring the right supply of inventory to meet your target service levels, while tying up a minimum amount of capital. The proposed solution will help to avert out-of-stock situations as well as overstocking by forecasting future demand for stock.

Challenge Description
A device to detect soil micro and macro nutrients available to plants. Device should be able to provide instant results which will replace the cumbersome process available currently.

Challenge Description
A solution to solve the existing problems of farmers. This solution should make sure that larger part of consumers rupee will reach the farmer. A model can be developed to link famers with consumers directly to avoid middlemen.

Challenge Description
Farmers are facing problems due to fluctuation in prices, excess production and other issues. Price forecasting can be a solution for this. A price forecasting model can be developed and also the information should be reached to all the farmers region wise. This model should be able to help farmers to select the crop season wise and reduce the risk of loss.

Challenge Description
Left out straw of paddy, wheat and sugarcane has become a biggest challenge to manage now a days. Farmers are burning the farm waste which is adding to the air pollution. An alternative solution can be identified to solve this issue where alternative waste management techniques/ product development out of farm waste or any other solutions can be identified

Challenge Description
Coffee harvesting in India is predominantly done manually by women laborers leading to severe shoulder and wrist pain which causes multiple health problems as well as drop in labour availability in peak harvest seasons. These health problems have brought about a shift in the working of the women labour making them less efficient. The manual harvesting also causes a drop in the quality of the output as selective harvesting of beans is tedious resulting in a mix of fully ripened and unripened coffee beans harvested in both Arabica and Robusta varieties of the crop resulting in poor drinking quality of the seeds. A device can be developed to harvest the selected coffee beans which will reduce the risk and pain that is causing to the labours now.

Challenge Description
It has become a daily news that fuel energy sources are deteriorating day by day. This challenge is to identify the alternate energy sources using waste food products like waste fruits, vegetables and biomass. And biodiesel using non edible oil etc.,

Challenge Description
Hygienic and user friendly harvesting equipments, small equipments for sorting, grading and packing farm produce which will be useful for Micro, small and medium farmers.

Challenge Description
As we have read in news and other sources that milk and oil are adulterated by adding urea, water and different adulterants. Adding such adulterant will not only reduce the quality of milk but some adulterants may also lead to health issues. In order to overcome this, it is always good to test the quality of milk and oil at the source itself. A technology can be developed to detect the adulteration instantly or within few minutes. So that adulterated milk and oil can be avoided at the source itself

Challenge Description
An alternative solution to minimize the pest and loss to farmers due to excess use of pesticides and also to the environment as more and more chemicals are added to the environment. This solution can be minimized through the use of eco friendly pesticides/ insecticides suing naturally available resources.
