The Department of Agriculture, Cooperation and Farmers Welfare has constituted a task force to develop a comprehensive farmers’ database for better planning, monitoring, strategy formulation and smooth implementation of schemes for the entire country, Union Minister of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Narendra Singh Tomar said in Lok Sabha Tuesday.

This centralised farmers database shall be useful for various activities like issuing soil health cards, dissemination of crop advisories to the farmers, precision farming, smart cards for farmers to facilitate e-governance, crop insurance, settlement of compensation claims, grant of agricultural subsidies, community and village resource centres among other facilities for the benefit of the farming community, the minister added.
