C-SAG is focusing to engineer an Intellectual Property (IP) suite for Agri-GIS – mainly to address Smallholder Farmer Services in 3 districts of S Orissa. The Agri-GIS will address beneficiary (or farmer) level aggregation and disaggregation of crop, water, soil, agricultural facilities and various social and economic parameters and provide time-bound and customised Advisories for farmers.
