FOREWORD
The AGMARKNET project, sponsored by the Directorate of Marketing and
Inspection (DMI), Ministry of Agriculture, has made rapid strides since it was initiated
with 210 nodes during October, 2000. The project has already expanded to about 2200
nodes across the country and further 1000 markets are expected to be networked under
the project by 2007. The project has reached this stage due to relentless collaborative
efforts of the involved organizations viz. the Directorate of Marketing and Inspection,
State Marketing Boards/Directorates and Agricultural Produce Wholesale Markets
facilitated by the National Informatics Centre at national, state and district level. With
these collective and collaborative efforts, a national database of daily market prices and
arrivals, covering about 300 commodities and 2000 varieties, has been evolved. This
database is now being integrated with local language interfaces for easy understanding
of the farming community. The project has generated valuable interest at the
international level also. A team of officers of Agricultural Department of South Africa
recently visited India to study this system.
For further strengthening of the project, NIC is organizing parallel training
programmes through out the country with the help of its field units. These programmes
aim at upgrading the ICT skills of market personnel and sensitizing them to maintain
quality of information being reported to the AGMARKNET portal. To facilitate seamless
flow of information to the portal, NIC has developed a new market level software based
on .NET platform. This user manual covers details of various aspects of the application
software and also facilitates smooth operationalization of the software at the market
level. The software also facilitates generating various types of cumulative, comparative
and trend reports for local analysis of market data.
NIC is committed to stakeholders of AGMARKNET to extend all technical support
for the strengthening of Agricultural Marketing Information System in the country.
