About

FarmerZone is a platform being developed by India’s Department of Biotechnology under the Ministry of Science and Technology, and is envisioned as an intuitive cloud-service that will collect, collate and curate data from multiple sources to provide key analytics that cater to all needs of the farmer, from dealing with climate change, weather predictions, pest control, soil, water and seed requirements to providing market intelligence. MarketZone, a part of FarmerZone, will connect smallholding farmers' produce to viable markets.

Integrating science, technology, innovation and farm ecosystem for effective agricultural decision making to address food scarcity and build a sustainable future

FarmerZone Model

First Sentinel: Potato

FarmerZone is working on getting relevant quality data related to agriculture into the cloud, developing sentinel sites that link with farmers. The FarmerZone consortium launched the First Sentinel under the DBT Initiative for Potato Farmers in pilot sites across Himachal, Pradesh, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh. The First Sentinel delivered soil data and other agricultural input data and market related information to farmers who have registered in the initial phases. The data was made available to them at the beginning of the sowing season, starting mid-September.
