Digital Fertility Map

Digital Fertility Map

Recently, a Digital Fertility Map has been prepared by the scientists of Kishanganj Agricultural University, Bihar.

Benefits for farmers:

  • Using this digital fertility map, farmers can easily decide which crop they should grow in which area for better returns.
  • Farmers can grow new crops and do crop diversification.
  • With this, the farmers can decide the right amount of fertilizers after knowing the fertility level of the soil of their field. This will give them a bumper yield.

Related concerns:

  • The increasing digitization of land records and the fertility details of the land are of great concern to agricultural scientists and farmers.
  • It is feared that this data may be misused by private companies and big corporate houses for various purposes like land acquisition and lending, which can put farmers in trouble.
