  • Currently, various departments of the government have separate apps for reporting hailstorms, providing market price information and more.
  • The new super app for farmers will combine everything that farmers need in a single place.
  • Apart from this, the app will also provide access to new research and development, technologies, best practices for harvesting, and more, in a single place.
The Indian government is reportedly looking to build a super app for farmers in the country, bringing several critical features like weather and market updates, advisories for different zones, government schemes and everything else under one single umbrella.

According to a report by the Economic Times, this super app will combine several apps launched by various government departments under the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare.

Some of these apps include AgriMarket which lets farmers get the market price of crops within 50KM of their current location. The Bhuvan Hailstorm app lets agriculture officers catalogue crop loss due to hailstorms. The Kisan Suvidha app lets farmers access weather information, dealer details, market prices, advisories and more.

Other apps currently offered by the government include Pusa Krishi, MKisan, Shetkari Masik, Farm-o-pedia, among others.

“The compilation of different apps under a super app at one place will help the farmers in choosing from a bouquet of services as per their requirements. The focus will be to aggregate these apps to further ease the process of searching a relevant app,” the ET report stated, quoting an unnamed ministry official.

Combining all the services under a single umbrella would make it easier for farmers to access the relevant information with a single click. Apart from this, the new super app for farmers will also include access to research and development, information about new technologies in farming, harvesting, and more.

It is not clear when the government will launch the new super app, but we should know more in the coming weeks.
