[Grand Finale Finalist: 16/18] Vijay Bhaskar Reddy Dinnepu – Kisan Raja’s Automated Irrigation

Posted By: Rise Team|Dated: March 29, 2012

Meet Vijay Bhaskar Reddy Dinnepu, of Vinfinet Technologies. His for-profit business venture, “Kisan Raja,” supports end-to-end automated irrigation.

“To me, Rise symbolizes the ability and intent to surge ahead with passion, perseverance and pride, taking one’s stakeholders, customers, employees, investors and society along with him on the journey towards excellence.” – Vijay Bhaskar Reddy Dinnepu

Transporting and pumping well-water to irrigate crops at the appropriate time is a difficult task plaguing farmers day and night, especially in areas with constant power cuts. Vijay and his team have created a remote-controlled starter and smart valve controller to manage when and how much water is pumped by electric pumps from the well into irrigation systems. Farmers can control the flow of water via their mobile phones, which helps to significantly reduce water waste and electricity, saving farmers money and time! But Vijay and his team have gone beyond this. Features like automated voice alerts – which can warn farmers about faulty power supplies and motors, and even attempted thefts – and a host of other features have made Kisan Raja’s automation solutions a dream come true for farmers wanting to increase productivity.

You should vote for Vijay’s project because:

  • It leverages technology to positively impact 72% of India’s population that is dependent on agriculture and making agriculture a profitable and farmer- friendly occupation with an ultimate objective of bringing food security.
  • It has a large environmental impact, resulting in the conservation of water and energy (of which there is significant usage in rural India).
  • It is a rapidly scalable business model with global potential, and can further strengthen India’s position as a land of technology innovation.
