Krishi Portal: Web Based Farmer Help Assistance
Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have made our life easy. ICTs are playing valuable roles in a variety of technical fields such as education, banking, health, E-commerce and many more. ICSs can also be used for farmers to help them to get more production and profit. This paper describes a web-based system - “Krishi-Portal” which will assist farmers to get information about various crops, diseases on crops, crop’s rates, government schemes for farmers and weather forecasting. The system is also a good platform for selling farmer’s production and buying material from vendors, which is necessary for farming. Farmers can also buy or sell new or old agricultural machinery that are used in farms like cultivators, Disc Harrow etc. This system is specifically useful for farmers but other business sectors will definitely get benefit of it; those are Agricultural agencies (such as Tractor sellers), Hotels (by getting raw materials- vegetables, milk etc.), Fertilizer sellers.
