The Process of Making RKMP

Knowledge Management in agriculture is relatively a new concept.  The mammoth task of driving the knowledge sharing process in agriculture requires lot of efforts at various hierarchical levels among agricultural organizations. 

In India, there is an urgent and strong need to adapt the KM strategies in agriculture.  In line with RKMP, there is a need to upscale KM initiatives in agriculture.

But before that, relevant human resources, tools, processes, strategies should be in place to transform agricultural organizations into “learning organizations”.  We are of the opinion that frameworks and success stories of KM worldwide need to be analyzed to prepare a road map for “KM in Agriculture”.

As a part of this vision, we wish to share the process that is involved in “Making of RKMP”.  If you are planning to work on agricultural semantic portals in future, please write to us for AKM (Agricultural Knowledge Management) tools, processes and strategies.
