Lack of effective and optimized monitoring and control strategy for vector and mosquitoes in urban and rural environments.
The proposal aims at commercializing a unique, efficacious and long-lasting semiochemical-based attract and kill (A&K) formulation to control Dengue, Zika, Malaria, Chikungunya and Filariasis Mosquito Vectors. The product Vectrax, is a patented floral attractant and phagostimulant blend of sugars and proteins with lethal doses of insecticide that lures the mosquito to feed continuously until it is fully engorged. Vectrax is a slow-release, sprayable formulation, that can be used through micro and macro bait stations and can sustain its A&K capacity in the field for weeks at a time.

Monitoring of the food supply to test for adulterated or fake products is limited both by lack of financial resources and availability of test procedures that can quickly confirm the authenticity of a product as it is delivered to the end consumer.
A method for quick detection of food adulteration, the technology involves a handheld pocket scanner that transmits a low-power laser beam into the test sample. The captured Raman response is compared to the “golden signature” in a cloud-based database. The user gets instant verification on their phones if the food product is genuine.

The current method of fertilizer application results in up to 70% wastage, which drastically degrades the soil, pollutes water and yet does not improve productivity.
This project proposes precision application of fertilizer through a powered Urea Deep Placement (UDP) applicator that is integrated with soil testing. The technology envisages 25% increase in yields; 40% reduction in fertilizer consumption; 7-8 times reduction in labour requirement; doubling of farmers' profits; and increasing soil organic content.
