Check Agricultural Market Prices Online
With over 70 percent of the population living in rural areas, India's economic growth significantly depends on the health of the agriculture sector. The ongoing process of globalisation and economic liberalisation has induced a paradigm shift in the field of Agricultural Marketing.
To make farming communities benefit from the new global market access opportunities, the internal agricultural marketing system of the country is being integrated and strengthened. Various studies reveal that farmers, on an average, get a reasonably higher price by selling their produce in the regulated markets (Agricultural Produce Market Committees - APMCs) compared to rural, village and unregulated wholesale markets.
The Directorate of Marketing and Inspection (DMI) is successfully running an ICT project: NICNET based Agricultural Marketing Information System Network (AGMARKNET) in the country, for linking all important APMCs (Agricultural Produce Market Committees), State Agricultural Marketing Boards/ Directorates and DMI regional offices located throughout the country, for effective information exchange on market prices. National Informatics Centre (NIC) is the ICT agency behind the implementation of the Project.
