BigM) When did you start your current research/work on the research topic? Please describe the focus of the research as well and please be specific?

Dadi:  I started research in geospatial technology in 2012 with Geo engineering department, Andhra University. The focus of my research is the use of satellite remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), and global positioning systems (GPS) in monitoring and managing natural disasters. I started version in 2016 and focuses on the importance of creating public awareness, improving capacity-building and resilience, and implementing technology-driven disaster management strategies to reduce the loss of human life and property caused by disasters. The research also highlights the value of geospatial technologies in creating detailed maps and in developing disaster preparedness and mitigation measures. It seems that the research includes case studies examining the use of remote sensing, GIS, and GPS in the management of various types of disasters, including cyclones, coastal erosion, and industrial disasters. Also, my research on-point focus is the development and use of a system called Hydrospatial Analysis Information System (HAIS) for the spatial analysis and assessment of groundwater quantity and distribution. The research also compares the performance of HAIS to other software tools for groundwater analysis in terms of processing time and memory occupation. The research seems to involve the analysis of software requirements and technical specifications for HAIS, as well as the design of the system’s overall flow and algorithms. 

BigM) Why did you start your current research? Please be specific and give any relevant dates/years.  

 What motivated you?   

Dadi:  As a resident of India, I have always been concerned about the issue of declining groundwater levels in some parts of the country. In my home region, access to clean drinking water and sufficient water for agriculture has always been a challenge, and I have seen first-hand the impact that this can have on communities and the environment. However, it wasn’t until I learned more about the challenges faced by some parts of the country with low levels of groundwater that I became motivated to try and find a solution to this pressing problem. It is indeed the case that some parts of India have low levels of groundwater resources, which can be a challenge for meeting the water needs of the population for drinking and agriculture. Over-extraction of groundwater, inadequate rainfall, and climate change are among the factors that have contributed to declining groundwater levels in certain parts of the country.

BigM) What were you doing before you started your current research?

Dadi:   After completing my undergraduate studies, I decided to pursue a master’s degree, with a focus on using information and communication technologies I was a senior full stack web developer at CSX. Prior to that, AgFirst Farm Credit Bank, Chubb Insurance, a Equifax, Retail Insight-Crossmark. Proven track record of creating and implementing complex technology solutions. I was interested in exploring the use of geographic information systems (GIS) and other geospatial technologies to map and understand the spatial distribution of groundwater and to identify ways to manage and protect these vital resources.

BigM) If your childhood or early family life has informed your choice in terms of your life as a researcher/scientist and/or the focus of that work, please let us know of any common themes?

Dadi:  As the son of a food and adulteration inspector in Andhra Pradesh, India, my father has always emphasized the impact of contamination and pollution on human health and the environment, including specific health risks associated with consuming contaminated water. He has taught me about the ways in which the environment can affect human life and the earth as a whole.” 

By researching the types of contamination present in ground level water sources in the region, it may be possible to identify patterns in the types of health problems that are being experienced by the population and guide efforts to address these issues. It relates to ground level water resources, is to identify the sources of contamination and pollution in the region. Understanding the causes of these issues can help policymakers and community leaders develop strategies for mitigating or eliminating them, which can protect the health of those who rely on ground level water sources for drinking, cooking, and other daily needs.

BigM) How did Covid affect the research you did for this most recent report in particular? If it did affect it, please be specific?

Dadi:  One major impact has been the increased demand for hand sanitizer and disinfectant products, which has led to a shortage of isopropyl alcohol, a key ingredient in many of these products. This shortage has in turn led to the use of alternative chemicals, such as methanol, to make hand sanitizer. Methanol is toxic if ingested and can cause blindness or death. There have been instances of people drinking hand sanitizer, mistaking it for alcohol, and becoming sick as a result. This has highlighted the importance of properly labelling and storing cleaning and disinfectant products, especially in places where children or vulnerable individuals may be present. Another impact of the pandemic has been the increased strain on water and wastewater treatment systems due to the increased use of cleaning and disinfectant products, as well as the influx of personal protective equipment such as face masks and gloves, which can clog pipes and equipment. 

BigM) Please describe those who will be helped by your work; please describe type of industry/person, locations, any other “goals” you have for the work you did in your research paper?

Dadi:  My research would be of benefit to a variety of industries and individuals working in the field of natural disaster management and water resource management. This includes government agencies, non-profit organizations, private companies, and researchers and academics working in related fields. The research will be particularly relevant for individuals and organizations working in regions prone to natural disasters, such as cyclones, coastal erosion, and industrial accidents, or in regions with low levels of groundwater resources and challenges in meeting the water needs of the population for drinking and agriculture. Also, my research is of interest to professionals in the field of hydroinformatics and geospatial technologies, as it involves the use of GIS and other geospatial technologies for mapping and understanding groundwater resources. .The implementation of this system not only improves the performance and efficiency of the clients but also optimizes the use of network resources for the benefit of all stakeholders.

The Perfect Investment: RAD Diversified and Income-Producing Farms




Amidst the global lockdown of 2020, Dutch Mendenhall, founder of RADD America, began looking for an alternative to standard residential real-estate investments. So, he turned his analysis to farms and was blown away by the immense potential he saw. After going public in late 2019, RADD America purchased US farmland and made slices of the real estate available at minimum investments of $10,000.

Income-producing farms vs. other real estate asset classes

According to Mendenhall, an apartment complex in today’s US real estate market commands approximately a 4% or 5% cap rate. Farms offer somewhere around a 15% to 20% cap rate.

“When I first began looking at investing in farms, I compared each acre to an apartment or housing unit,” Mendenhall recalls. “The variety that income-producing farms provide is what I really love about them as an opportunity. With one season producing wheat and corn the next, you can double tap — you can raise livestock on top of agriculture. Putting money into the farm only pays off in time. Everything from improving soil to increasing irrigation makes a major impact on potential income, and so much of America’s farmland has fallen into disrepair during the last 20 years.”

When Mendenhall began investing during the early days of the pandemic, sustainable acres of producing farmland sold anywhere from $3,500 to $5,000. Today, he finds that income-producing acres of farmland easily sell for $9,500 to $10,000.

“I’ve seen farmland values almost double during the last couple of years,” Mendenhall says. “Currently, we’re in Tennessee, Arkansas, and Idaho, but we are analyzing land all over America. What reports don’t show is the difference between a properly maintained acre of farmland and an acre that is in disarray. There’s only so much workable farmland on the market today. We’ve hit the tipping point, and now, there’s a scarcity of land for people to buy. If you have the opportunity to purchase amazing agricultural land, you have to pull the trigger quickly.”

Income-producing farms as an asset class

Mendenhall is no stranger to investors. Since 2006, he’s connected them to deals in short sales, wholesaling, residential properties, and storage units, though he admits that every asset class has caused the same excitement as farmland. “At this point, we can’t find enough bargains for our investors,” he says. “They take real pride in their investments and keep asking us for more.”

RADD America takes a true grassroots approach when connecting its investors to farmland. “The farming world is different from any other in real estate,” explains Mendenhall. “We start by having our acquisitions and agricultural teams meet with farmers. When we get ready to brand cattle or plant, all the local farmers come and help. In the same spirit, our teams go out and help the local farmers when it’s their turn to brand and plant. To do it right, you have to build a relationship and a connection that’s quite different than other types of investing.”

RADD America is composed of expert investors and expert farmers. The company offers its investments through fractionalized ownership. In other words, the company purchases one farm and then allows a joint pool of investors to own it together. 

“If you don’t have a team that knows how to farm and maximize income, you’re not going to get the best possible return for investors,” warns Mendenhall. “Thankfully, our team isn’t so big for this type of investing that we forget who we are, and we have the economy to scale at a great pace.”

The impact of global competition on income-producing farm investments

RADD America closely monitors global trends. In Mendenhall’s experience, investors win when they move before the market. However, when they move after the market, they lose.

“When Russian first invaded and sparked its war with Ukraine, for example, we kept a close eye on its global impact,” he says. “As one of the largest producers of wheat in the world, we knew that Ukraine — now in the midst of a war — wasn’t going to be able to produce wheat at the same scale, so someone else needs to step in and fill the gap. We’re constantly monitoring what’s happening in the world to stay on top of evolving trends.”

In terms of global competition, Mendenhall is frustrated by foreign entities staking ownership of American farmland and agriculture. In this area, China has positioned itself as the number one threat to the sovereignty of the United States.

“When foreign powers have ownership of agricultural land in the US, it puts us all at risk as Americans,” remarks Mendenhall. “Over the past few years, we’ve seen soil quality erode, closures of meatpacking plants, and numerous fires. The likelihood of nuclear war in this age is very small. The quiet war of buying American agriculture and unsettling the American dollar is the threat we face today.”

Clearly, RADD America has a lot to pay attention to at home and abroad. “We’re monitoring weather patterns and making one-year, three-year, and five-year predictions,” Mendenhall explains. “We’re also paying close attention to interest rates to see where this shifting economy is headed. The up-and-down cycles are faster than they’ve ever been. Monitoring the industry is critical. With expert investors and agricultural specialists from RADD America on your team, farmland can be one of your most promising and rewarding investment opportunities.”
