Crop Insurance using Space technology And geoiNformatics
The Central Government launched its flagship project C(K)rop Insurance using Space technology And geoiNformatics (KISAN) to speed up payment of crop insurance claims to farmers and provide accurate assessment of crop damage. The project will use satellite and drone- based imaging and other geospatial technology to get timely and precise data on crop yields. The pilot study will be carried out in one district each of Haryana, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra during Kharif season of 2015 and two districts each of these states during Rabi season of 2015-2016. The government also launched an Android-based app for collection of data of hailstorm with assistance from Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) to assess large-scale damage to standing crops. The state agriculture officials will use the facility to help the Central Government make quick assessment of damage to crops.
