Agribazaar Launches AI-driven GIS-based Command Centre for UP Farmers

The project will digitally visualise agricultural data spanning over 57,000 gram panchayats across 827 blocks in all 75 districts of Uttar Pradesh.

Agribazaar, an agritech platform and a member of the StarAgri group spearheaded an AI-driven Geographic Information Systems (GIS)-based command centre in Lucknow yesterday. Chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath inaugurated the event. 

This initiative is part of the crop survey project by the Uttar Pradesh Diversified Agriculture Support Project (UPDASP). 

The inauguration of this command center represents a crucial step towards data-driven agriculture in Uttar Pradesh. It will cover vast agricultural data from all districts, revolutionising farming practices. 

The project was developed under the guidance of Manoj Kumar Singh, IAS, Agricultural Production Commissioner (APC), Government of Uttar Pradesh. Agribazaar is the nodal agency for the project for the next three years. It will partner with three private companies in its efforts. 

Amit Mundawala, co-founder and managing director, Agribazaar. "The comprehensive data collected will serve as a scientific repository, addressing critical gaps in India's agricultural value chain. By empowering informed decision-making, it will ultimately benefit both farmers and consumers removing information inefficiency in the Indian agri-value chain. We've developed one of India’s foremost integrated agri-tech platforms, poised to revolutionise the Indian agri-sector with affordable yet customised solutions. It's intelligent, user-friendly, and supported by our extensive on-ground agricultural knowledge, powered by AI and ML-driven future tech." 

The agritech said that the inauguration of the GIS-based command centre underscores its position as India's foremost integrated tech-driven supply chain platform. 

The project will enable the real-time visualisation and analysis of spatial data and provide stakeholders with valuable insights into soil health, crop yields, and weather patterns. These data-driven insights will, in turn, help enhance resource management practices, identify areas for targeted interventions, boost agricultural productivity, and improve access to farm services like credit and insurance—thus strengthening the resilience of India's agriculture.
