Safe Farming: Crop raiding prevention from vertebrates



This research proposes a model of safe farming in which the crops of the farm (field) are going to be protected from vertebrates (animals and birds with a backbone). One of the main problems for the farmers in farming is the protection of their crops, before and after harvesting from animals and birds. Farmers use different methods to protect their crops from vertebrates. For a long time, farmers have used scarecrows (a man statue made up of dry grass) in their fields, but that doesn’t seem to work. These scarecrows are actually for scaring the vertebrates and prevent them from entering the fields but instead these vertebrates start playing with it like a toy and are not scared at all. This results in damage of crops with zero prevention.
