IIT Roorkee -'KISAN' Mobile App - KISAN Mobile App

IIT Roorkee under Gramin Krishi Mausam Sewa (GKMS) project has launched the ‘KISAN’ mobile app for dissemination of Agromet Advisory Services. IIT Roorkee held a regional farmers’ awareness programme as part of the Gramin Krishi Mausam Sewa (GKMS) project and as part of the ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ series.

Agromet advisory services give a unique set of inputs to farmers in the form of advisories that can significantly improve agriculture productivity by maximising the benefits of favourable weather while minimising the negative effects of unfavourable weather.

‘KISAN’ mobile app is launched for easy access to these services for farmers on their mobile phones. The app is able to meet the meteorological needs of the farmers.
