Government of India decided to geo-tag all assets like farm ponds, soil testing labs etc created under the Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojna (RKVY) for transparency and proper fund utilization.
The National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), a wing of Indian Space Research Organisation, and RKVY division of the Agriculture Ministry are collaborating to develop an android App for geo-tagging assets .NRSC has provided the required app and imparting training to officials to facilitate uploading of photos of assets to the Bhuvan-RKVY platform.”At present, there is manual details of RKVY assets and there is no transparency on their utilisation. With geo-tagging, the centre will have details of the assets and we can use them properly depending on demand and supply,” Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh said .
The agriculture minister further said that the space technology needs to be developed in areas such as land resource mapping, pesticides management, soil health mapping, crop yield estimation as well as the identification and assessment of floods like calamities, inland fisheries, animal species identification and sheep rearing.
