Agriculture markets in India to get digitally connected

SHARE

The agriculture ministry in India will provide electronic connectivity to important wholesale markets throughout the country to ultimately put in place a national atlas of agriculture markets on the telecom-based GIS platform. The atlas will contain information on the entire agricultural marketing infrastructure, including warehouses, cold storages, markets and other related infrastructure. Besides, the commodity profiles indicating the post-harvest requirements for each of them would also be available on the national agriculture markets atlas. Over 1,000 markets have already been connected to a central portal for collection and dissemination of prices and other market-related information.
