Artificial intelligence (AI) is disrupting many industries with its advanced capabilities, and the agriculture sector is no exception.

Kissan GPT is an AI-powered chatbot aimed at helping farmers in India maximise their crop yields.

This chatbot is based on ChatGPT and Whisper, which are AI chatbots that deliver answers in a conversational way. 

What is Kissan GPT?

Kissan GPT is an AI-powered chatbot that was introduced by Pratik Desai on March 15, 2023.

It offers immediate guidance on crop farming, irrigation, pest management, and other agriculture-related subjects.

The chatbot is based on ChatGPT technology and combines the platform's own knowledge base to deliver answers.

It is aimed at serving the underserved agriculture domain of India and helping farmers maximise their yields.

Kissan GPT Interface:

Kissan GPT's user interface is quite simple. Kissan GPT stands out from other popular AI chatbots as it does not rely on text inputs. Instead, it uses the microphone of the user's phone or laptop to receive and process their spoken queries.

The chatbot facilitates communication in 10 different Indian languages such as Hindi, English, Marathi, Bengali, and Gujarati, as well as Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, and Indonesian.

Using their smartphones, farmers can communicate with the chatbot in their preferred language and receive comprehensive responses to their inquiries within seconds.

How does Kissan GPT work?

Based on the information available on the website, Kissan GPT utilizes the ChatGPT technology developed by OpenAI, along with its own knowledge repository, to provide responses.

The chatbot employs ChatGPT-3.5-turbo and is anticipated to enhance further following the integration of GPT-4 and personalised embeddings.

 Kissan GPT is not only designed for farmers but anyone with an interest in agriculture, such as students, researchers, and hobbyists.

What's next for Kissan GPT?

On 31st March, Pratik Desai shared that Kissan GPT, the AI chatbot, is progressing well and set to handle 10% of the calls made to farmer call centres.

The platform is also looking for collaboration with the government and agriculture institutes to improve results.

Without providing many details, he also said that mobile apps are also coming, and two more languages will be added soon. Desai also mentioned that he is currently developing Bharat GPT.
