Notably, so far, as per the information provided by the Ministry, a database of about 5 crore farmers has already been prepared. Further, the available data related to PM Kisan, Soil Health Card and PM Crop Insurance Scheme have already been integrated.
“The Ministry has signed MoUs with multinationals like Microsoft and Amazon also which is in question due to other reasons, but nobody can question their expertise in the field of technology development. But in the case of PORI it is just the opposite. PORI may have done outstanding work in organic farming but in technology development it has nothing to claim,” added the data activist.
As per the MoU, Ramdev’s company will develop an app to do soil mapping, nutrient profiling of soil, and collection of demographic details of farmers.
