PM Narendra Modi Launches Kisan Suvidha App For Farmers

Farmers often struggle for basic information like weather updates, crop prices and expert advice, ending up often relying on hearsays.

A new mobile app—Kisan Suvidha—launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi will prove helpful for farmers in this regard but they must own a smartphone. The app is likely to have many takers as India is second largest smartphone market in the world with 87 million mobile Internet users in rural areas.


The app has a simple interface and provides information on five critical parameters—weather, input dealers, market price, plant protection and expert advisories. An additional tab directly connects the farmer with the Kisan call centre where technical graduates answer their queries.


Extra info:

  • Farmers can also access names and mobile numbers of input dealers selling pesticides, seeds, fertiliser and machinery. This is a handy tool—farmers can now make a call and compare prices and availability before they actually head out to purchase these inputs.
  • The agriculture ministry, which developed the app, describes it as an “omnibus for quick and relevant information”. Adding more local languages will take it a step further.

So lets do:

  • Who is the Union agriculture minister of India?
  • What is the Name of the app PM modi Launched For Farmers?
