INDIA / India Projects Program
Agriculture is the primary occupation in Himachal Pradesh, yet farming implements have not modernized alongside national trends. Indian Institute of Technology Mandi (IIT Mandi) students have been developing prototypes that can alleviate regional cultivation challenges. Our project documented existing agricultural practices, challenges, and perspectives on technology in order to develop a collaborative process for students to design devices that suit local needs. We tested our appropriate technology rubric to develop a seed planter and irrigation system for terraced farms.
