Krishi Integrated Command And Control Centre

Krishi Integrated Command And Control Centre:

The Union Agriculture Minister inaugurated a Krishi Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC).

  • Krishi Integrated Command and Control Centre is a tech-based solution involving multiple IT applications and platforms, housed in the Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers’ Welfare.
  • It will enable comprehensive monitoring of the farm sector by making available at one place geospatial information received from multiple sources, including remote sensing; plot-level data received through soil survey and weather data from the India Meteorological Department (IMD) etc.
  • It uses state of the art technologies such as artificial intelligence, remote sensing, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to collect and process large amounts of granular data — on temperatures, rainfall, wind speed, crop yields and production estimations — and presents it in graphical format.
  • It provides information on crop yields, production, drought situation, cropping patterns (geographic region-wise and year-wise) in map, timeline and drill-down views.
  • It uses platforms including the Krishi Decision Support System (DSS) to collect micro-level data, process it, and present the macro picture.
  • It can create an ecosystem based on which individual farmer-level advisories can be generated through apps like Kisan e-mitra, a chatbot developed for PM-Kisan beneficiaries.
  • The AI-/machine learning-based system will identify a farmer through his/ her mobile number or Aadhaar, and match it with the farmer’s field information obtain through land records, historical crop sowing information from the crop registry, weather data from IMD, etc.
  • It will then generate a customised advisory in the local language of the farmer.
  • For this, the system will use the Bhashini platform that allows translation into several Indian languages.
