                       Synergistic  use  of  technologies  like,  Remote  Sensing,  Drones,  GIS,  GPS,
               Mobiles, Simulation models and ICT tools, could lead to a robust system for  building
               agricultural intelligence in order to address various issues linked to the performance of
               crops  at  circle,  taluka  and  district  level.  The  main  objective  of  the  current  project  is
               development and implementation of the state-of-the-art technologies for comprehensive
               assessment of the agricultural situation periodically throughout the cropping season and
               timely reporting of the information to the decision makers at various levels. This task
               calls for in-season real time monitoring of crops and infer the diagnostics to mitigate the
               stress  due  to  adverse  conditions  or  calamities,  which  affect  the  income  from  the

                       In  this  project,  quantitative  indicators  pertaining  to  weather,  soil  and  crops
               supported  by  intensive  field  information/observation  collected  through  mobile  app  on
               real-time basis are used in the analysis to  generate a strong agricultural  intelligence
               information for specific crops throughout the cropping season.

                       The project attempts innovative mapping and data analysis techniques to provide
               quantitative  in-season  measures/metrics/parameters  related  crop  growth  and
               productivity.  Capabilities  of  all  the  tools  and  techniques,  currently  available  for  crop
               assessment and global experiences are fully exploited to generate objective information
               products.  for  example,  satellite  data  of  medium  and  fine  resolutions  will  be  used,
               respectively, for semi-detailed and detailed information on crop growth and prospects;

               GIS tools for generation of maps, GPS for geo-location and time-stamping, mobiles for
               in- situ collection and transmission of field data on crops, soils, pests and diseases, etc.
               are generated for assessment of the crop growth. A comprehensive geo-portal with user
               friendly dash boards is envisaged to develop with modern Geo-ICT tools for viewing,
               querying and display and dissemination.

                       In this holistic process, the role of the line departments for field data collection as
               well as the feedback/validation of the information products, will be of immense value to
               strengthen the agricultural information system.

                              In this project following specific objectives are envisaged;
                   •  Crop  inventory:  Satellite  based  crop  mapping  and  inventory,  selective  use  of

                   •  Crop surveillance: Mobile apps, weather data and Satellite based indices
