Enhancing Agricultural Practices with the Krishi Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC)          


  • Recently inaugurated by Agriculture Minister Arjun Munda, the Krishi Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC) at Krishi Bhavan in New Delhi represents a significant technological advancement in agriculture. This article explores the functionalities and objectives of the ICCC, shedding light on its potential impact on agricultural practices in India.

Understanding the Krishi ICCC:

  • The Krishi ICCC is a technology-driven initiative housed within the Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers’ Welfare, aimed at facilitating informed decision-making in the agricultural sector. It integrates various IT applications and platforms to streamline data collection, processing, and presentation for effective agricultural management.

Utilizing Cutting-Edge Technologies:

  • At the heart of the ICCC are advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, remote sensing, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). These technologies enable the collection and processing of extensive data on factors like temperatures, rainfall, wind speed, crop yields, and production estimates. The processed data is then visually represented on eight large LED screens at the centre.

Visual Outputs and Insights:

  • Through the ICCC, stakeholders can access comprehensive information on crop yields, production, drought situations, and cropping patterns. The data is presented in various formats, including maps, timelines, and drill-down views, allowing for in-depth analysis. Moreover, the centre provides insights, alerts, and feedback on agricultural schemes and initiatives, enhancing decision-making capabilities.

Objectives of the ICCC:

  • The primary objective of the ICCC is to enable comprehensive monitoring of the farm sector by consolidating geospatial information from multiple sources. These sources include remote sensing, soil surveys, weather data from the India Meteorological Department (IMD), and more. The integrated visualization of this data facilitates efficient decision-making processes.

Potential for Individual Farmer-Specific Advisories:

  • In the future, the ICCC aims to develop an ecosystem for generating individual farmer-specific advisories. Leveraging AI and machine learning, the system will tailor advisories based on factors such as land records, crop sowing information, and weather data. This personalized approach will enhance the effectiveness of agricultural interventions.

Practical Applications and Impact:

  • The ICCC has several practical applications that can revolutionize agricultural practices:
  • Farmer’s Advisory: By visualizing soil carbon mapping and soil health card data alongside weather-related information, personalized advisories can be sent to farmers regarding crop selection and resource management.
  • Drought Actions: The centre enables proactive decision-making by correlating yield fluctuations with weather and rainfall data, aiding in drought management.
  • Crop Diversification: Analysis of crop diversification maps helps identify regions suitable for diversified cropping, empowering farmers with informed choices.
  • Farm Data Repository: The Krishi Decision Support System (K-DSS) acts as a repository for agricultural data, facilitating evidence-based decision-making and customized farmer advisories.


  • The Krishi Integrated Command and Control Centre represents a significant step towards leveraging technology for the advancement of agriculture in India. With its data-driven approach and practical applications, the ICCC has the potential to enhance productivity, sustainability, and resilience in the agricultural sector.
