Abstract

Agricultural statistics should correspond to ground situations and determine the actual extent of each crop along with cultivation and other farming practices. The process should provide reliable, retraceable geographical data that are climate independent and can be applied to different agroclimatic regions. Geo-stamping approach, an integration of remote sensing, GPS, and GIS, has an inbuilt tracking of workflow of any regular data collection and reporting system and allows plot-level inventory. The process is cost-effective, and the basic reference data system can be used repeatedly without much effort. GPS-based smartphones are the best instruments that can be operated by anyone because it provides authenticity of data and captures actual ground situation.
