The application software "AGMARK" facilitates for all commodities being transacted in the Wholesale Market for their own use and analysis, in addition to meeting the requirements of DMI, provided the Wholesale Markets give complete details of the commodities transacted with respect to their varieties, grades, and places of origin. These details are required to build up "directory" in the information system, which is required for commodity-wise, variety-wise, grade-wise and place of origin-wise analysis.
