Predicting Fertilizer Input for Rice Cultivation in India

Home to over 1.38 billion people, India is tackling a severe hunger crisis. Though the country has achieved self-sufficiency in grain production, nearly 14% of its population is still undernourished. Indiscriminate use of fertilizers has led to significant irregularity in crop production despite consistent agricultural subsidies. With the current global shortage of fertilizers, precision farming is vital to eliminate redundant costs and streamline resources to ensure equitable food access for all communities. Here, we assist policy-makers in their decisions through models predicting the fertilizer consumption (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potash) required to obtain a specific rice yield.
