TCS Technologies for Earth Regeneration & Rejuvenating the Atmosphere (TERRA) aims to improve sustainability in food production and enhance cross sectoral integrations and synergies. TERRA a unique Sky & Earth convergence approach that leverages Sky data sets such as Weather, Satellite Imagery , and Earth data sets such as Images, Ground Data, Sensing (optional) that generates data-driven carbon smart protocols to improve Carbon sequestration, monitor carbon smart practices, finally, estimate the carbon stocks in the farmland
To assess the Carbon sink, TERRA also measures the adoption of the Carbon Smart Crop Protocol recommended during the crop cycle and creates an adoption index for everyone. Adoption index is used an additional earth data set for assessing the carbon sequestration level. Statistical measures such as R-squared and Root Mean Squared Error (RMSE) are used to assess the accuracy of the ML/DL model
To assess the Carbon accumulation, TCS also examines the adoption of the Carbon Smart Crop Protocol recommended during the crop cycle and creates an adoption index for each farmer.
TERRA Unique way of combining Sky & Earth data helps in the following
Minimal calibration requirement using open-source data sets combined with Sky Earth convergence approach and so, less dependency on ground-based measurements
Experience working with ~2m farmers across globe and technology validated for both small holder & professional farmersE2E value chain: Easy Integration with other Carbon Market place solutions to offer an integration solution addressing all challenges in Carbon Farming value chain
Solution can also be extended to Livestock, Forestry etc. as well Uniqueness of the approach is in intelligently combining the right mix of Sky & Earth data that delivers expected accuracy at a fraction of the cost.
