Measuring and demonstrating sustainability has shown to be a significant challenge. As a Microsoft partner, is developing effective and efficient means to measure environmental impact, starting with utilizing Farmbeats to capture environmental sensor data at individual growers. We saw this opportunity of pulling together accredited data scientists, engineers, project managers, and software developers from Microsoft as the means to demonstrate this significant challenge. The primary goal of this project is to look at current, and past irrigation data in order to develop continuous projected needs on how much, how often, and how long to irrigate your crops. The team accomplished this goal by building a PowerBI-based irrigation insights dashboard that brings in farm-specific data from grower sensor & ERP systems, and aligning to KPIs that matter for different personas - grower vs. supplier vs regulators. The hack challenge was to build a architecture that supports both identifiable and de-identified data views, embraces the requirements of each persona, and succinctly summarizes environmental KPIs that are relevant to Microsoft's food-related customer base. In addition to creating a world-class sustainability dashboard, the goal was to build ML models that substantiate what inputs growers can change to affect environmental KPIs while maintaining the same or better outcome for crop yield (quality & quantity). Watch the below 3-minute video to see how we progressed as a team -
