The state government has decided to implement the ‘e-Peak Inspection’ program from August 15 using the mobile app developed by the farmers themselves to record crop sowing information in Village Sample No. 12 using the mobile app. E-Peek Pahani
The algorithm has been developed in collaboration with the Tata Trust to collect objective information of the crop sowing report and to settle crop insurance and crop inspection claims. The participation of farmers in this system has made it possible to bring transparency. This algorithm has been successfully used on an experimental basis at Mauje.Karanjpada in Wada taluka of Palghar district and the project has been successfully implemented in 20 talukas of the state before the e-crop survey project.
E-Crop Survey will be used to collect information on Crop Survey in a fast, objective and transparent manner using information technology. Authenticated real time data will be available through the app. Information about vertical crops in one’s own field can be made available through the mobile application, along with photographs of crops showing latitude and longitude. Committees have been constituted at the state, divisional, district and taluka levels for the implementation of this program.
Benefits of e-Crop Survey-
The information in the e-crop survey project will be very useful for the direct benefit of any scheme payable to the farmers. Accurate statistics of area under crop by village, taluka, district and division will be easily available. It will be possible to give the benefit of schemes like drip and sprinkler irrigation scheme to the account holders accurately.
As the account wise and crop wise area list becomes available, the employment guarantee cess and education tax payable by the farmer can be fixed. Account-wise crop inspection will enable account-wise crop lending, crop insurance or crop loss compensation. Agricultural calculations can be done very easily and accurately.
Stages and duration of e-crop inspection
The account holder will be registered once under e-Crop Survey. By September 15, season wise crop information will be uploaded along with a photograph of the crop drawn with latitude-longitude. Talathi will maintain it by verifying the accuracy of the information in the mobile app from September 16 to 30 and correcting it if necessary. Account wise crop information will be made available in the relevant digital signature in Village Sample No. 12 in 7/12. From October 1, farmers can upload rabi season crop inspections.
As 20 account holders can be registered from one mobile, if a farmer does not have his own smartphone, he can use another available smartphone. In case of a minor account holder, his parents can register. Shared account holders will be able to independently register the crops in the area under their jurisdiction.
The administration is trying to involve every farmer in the e-crop survey as it will enable the farmers to avail various facilities and schemes and the process is transparent. Necessary training has been started in that regard. If the farmers are aware of this system, it may be useful for them to use e-crop inspection in future.
