E-Krishi, the market driven agricultural initiative through IT enabled agri-business centes in Kerala state addresses the existing gap in agriculture information flow and transaction management. The vision of the project is to establish a well connected farmers community throughout Kerala who have access to information on market demand, price, good agricultural practices, quality agricultural inputs supported by a technology enabled robust transaction platform that facilitates all their offline activities. The project is piggybacked on the existing resources of Akshaya e-kendras for providing the services.
The project was piloted in Malappuram district in 2006 and was funded by UNDP/NISG. Now it is operational in Kasaragod, Kannur, Kozhikode and Kollam districts with the help of Department of Agriculture and Local Self Government Institutions.
