Mitra is available both in English and Tamil, so that farmers themselves can access the information on macro and micro nutrient deficiency and remedial measures. The content is based on the latest research by the Department of Agriculture of the Government of Tamil Nadu and the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, in Southern India.

Mitra is available on Google Play. The App is designed to work also in an offline mode, so that farmers without internet connection can access the information.
