Atmanirbhar Krishi app
Atmanirbhar Krishi app was launched by the Indian Government to enable farmers to have access to data pertaining to weather and personalised agricultural insights. These include information on soil type, soil health, moisture, weather and water table. This will help farmers to choose crops, fertilizers and water based on their individual needs.
It combines the data from various government ministries and departments like IMD, ISRO, National Water Informatics Centre and others so that farmers can easily access the large array of information. This will help farmers adapt to the changing climatic conditions and sustainably use the limited resources.
