An Atmanirbhar India can be achieved primarily through self-reliance and self-
sustainability in agriculture. Standardization and promotion of indigenous knowledge
of agricultural technology, techniques and resource utilization are imperative.
Findings relevant to farmers are housed in multiple national and international
databases. Atmanirbhar Krishi app seeks to aggregate this data and provide farm
and region-specific content to the farmers.
