Q:What is agropedia?

Posted in

agropedia is a vision which seeks to address lacunae in Indian agriculture knowledge and application, specifically the lack of content, organized information, and extension services which are serious challenges. It has developed delivery mechanisms such as vKVK and KVK-Net, which are a means to connect extension scientists and farmers, based on its web platform which hosts information on agriculture and rural livelihood.  The web platform, agropedia, is unique in the agricultural domain as it is semantically organized and enabled so as to assist one in getting exactly what information or service she or he is looking for. Along with content in the library section, certified by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (gyan dhara), it also allows space for interaction, knowledge co-creation (jana gyan) and social networking (chat, blog, forum) making the site dynamic and learning participative.
