National Farmers Database

The Central Government is planning to set up a National Farmers Database using digitised land records to provide proactive and personalised services to the farmers. It aims to leverage publically available data and technological solutions to boost farmers’ income. The database will reduce the input cost, improve quality of crops and promote ease of doing business for farmers.
Initially, the database will only consist of data of farmers who are the legal owners of the agricultural land as per the government database. It excludes landless farmers. It will provide personalised information regarding soil and plant health advisories, direct benefit transfer, irrigation facilities, weather advisories etc.
