National Farmers Database

The Centre’s new National Farmers Database will only include land-owning farmers for now as it will be linked to digitized land records.

National Farmers Database

  • The Central government had proposed an Agristack initiative to create a digital database that focuses on farmers and the agricultural sector.
  • The database would be linked to the digital land record management system and would thus only include farmers who were legal owners of agricultural land.
  • As part of the first step of this initiative, the government has initiated a farmers database that would serve as the core of the Agristack.
  • It would also facilitate seamless credit & insurance, seeds, fertilizers, and pesticide-related information.
  • The database would facilitate online single sign-on facilities for universal access and usher in proactive and personalized services to farmers such as DBT, soil and plant health advisories, weather advisories
  • The availability of a database would serve an important role in the formulation of evidence-based policies for the agricultural sector.
  • The availability of data will make it possible to implement digital technologies like AI/Machine Learning, IoT in the agricultural domain, thus opening up the sector to immense opportunities for improvement in productivity
