Project CHAMAN

Project CHAMAN

 To develop India’s horticulture sector and help states identify suitable areas and crop types, the agriculture ministry is working on a project which uses satellites and remote sensing technology. The project is known as CHAMAN.

 CHAMAN or Coordinated Horticulture Assessment and Management is being implemented by the Delhi-based Mahalanobis National Crop Forecast Centre.

 Under the project, the ministry will use remote sensing and geo informatics data to integrate information on weather, soil, land-use, and crop mapping to prepare horticulture development plans.

 The idea is to use space technology to identify crops suitable to different areas and raise production of horticulture crops.

 The project will help states develop horticulture clusters and related infrastructure like cold chains.

 Currently, India is the second largest producer of fruits and vegetables in the world, and a top producer of crops like banana, mango and lemons.

 Various programmes of the Ministry such as PMFBY, Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana (PMKSY), Soil Health Card, Rashtriya KrishiVikasYojana (RKVY) etc. are using remote sensing, GIS and GPS tools for their effective implementation.
