More than half of the Indian population is dependent upon agriculture for their livelihood and the entire 100 per cent population of the country is dependent upon the farmers for their daily sustenance.

Agriculture also amounts to almost one fifth of India’s gross GDP. Ironically, the standard of living of farmers is quite a mess in the country.

To counter act the sorry state of our nourishment providers, the government of India has launched these mobile apps for the empowerment of rural & urban farmers.
