Abstract

ICRISAT conducted the research experiment with the hypothesis that agricultural statistics should correspond to ground situations and determine the actual extent of each crop along with cultivation and other farming practices. The process should provide reliable, retraceable geographical data that are climate independent and can be applied to different agroclimatic regions. Having studied different approaches, tools, and technologies for generating crop statistics, it was decided to adopt “geo-stamping” approach with different geospatial tools. It is an integration of remote sensing, GPS, and GIS having inbuilt tracking of workflow of any regular data collection and reporting system and allowing plot-level inventory.
