There have been several initiatives by State and Central Governments to meet the various challenges facing the agriculture sector in the country. The Agriculture MMP has been included in NeGP in an effort to consolidate the various learnings from the past, integrate all the diverse and disparate efforts currently underway, and upscale them to cover the entire country.
The MMP is to be operationalised by Department of Agriculture and Cooperation (DAC), and aims to provide services, such as:
- Information to farmers on seeds, fertilizers, pesticides
- Information to farmers on Govt. Schemes
- Information to farmers on Soil recommendations
- Information on crop management
- Information on weather and marketing of agriculture produce
