From the early age of 16 he is into learning about new upcoming technology being from the village he has seen many farmers facing issues during their agricultural practices and he began his research to understand the problem properly to solve them using technology.
Farmer suicide due to crop failure is very common. Hailing from a farmer family, I was aware of the issue at a very young age. In 2017, when I was in class 9, I used to read a lot about farmer suicides in newspapers and decided to research it. I found that 80 percent of crop failure is due to a bacterial attack and while we have solutions for weather conditions, there is very little done to prevent bacterial attacks on fields. I decided to work for this cause,” Rishikesh said.
