Coffee growers can find their land by zooming in on the map, entering geographic coordinates or by selecting their administrative divisions and check their soil propertynutrient status and fertiliser recommendation specific to the location.

The spatial variation of individual nutrients can also be thematically visualised.

After the fertiliser recommendation is generated, the farmer can generate his fertiliser recommendation, nutrient advisory and soil health card in English, Kannada, Tamil or Malayalam.

"The application is developed using open source technology and has a responsive design that has been tested for compatibility with any screen sizes of tablets and smart phones," said IIITM-K official R. Ajithkumar.
