The Department of Agriculture under has commenced the work for creating Agristack in India - Updates
The Agristack is an ecosystem for facilitating the delivery of digital services to farmers by the government, Agri-tech firms, startups, FPOs, and other entities.
Appears to have a pretty aggressive and comprehensive ambitions in terms of the deliverables. This intent is also visible from the wide range of companies / organizations with which MoUs have been signed for proof of concept / use cases: from Microsoft for agri ecosystem consolidation, ITC for crop specific advisory, Cisco for knowledge sharing solutions, NCDEX for digital marketplace and more...
While such a wide ambition is indeed laudable, it also should not become too unwieldy an exercise that gets stuck, which is always a concern with so many diverse stakeholders involved!
