New Delhi, Feb 2, 2024: The Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare in India has implemented Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods to tackle various issues in the agricultural sector and provide assistance to farmers.

Some of the initiatives include:

  1. 'Kisan e-Mitra' is an AI-powered chatbot designed to help farmers with inquiries regarding the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme. This solution supports multiple languages and is continuously evolving to assist with other government programs.
  2. The National Pest Surveillance System utilizes AI and Machine Learning to detect crop issues caused by climate change. This system enables timely intervention to ensure healthier crops and minimize losses.
  3. AI-based analytics are used to assess crop health using field photographs, as well as monitoring crop health for rice and wheat crops using satellite, weather, and soil moisture datasets.

This information was provided by the Union Minister of Agriculture and Farmers' Welfare Arjun Munda in a written reply in Rajya Sabha on Friday.

Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the intelligence exhibited by machines or software, as opposed to human or animal intelligence. It is a field of study in computer science that focuses on the development and study of intelligent machines, also known as AIs.

AI technology is widely utilized in various industries, government sectors, and scientific fields. Some notable applications include advanced web search engines (e.g., Google Search), recommendation systems (used by YouTube, Amazon, and Netflix), speech recognition (such as Google Assistant, Siri, and Alexa), self-driving cars (e.g., Waymo), generative and creative tools (ChatGPT and AI art), and superhuman play and analysis in strategy games (such as chess and Go).
