International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), in collaboration with Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU), is facilitating an interactive internet-based knowledge management portal called "Advancing Agricultural Practice". This portal aims to facilitate knowledge and experience-sharing among the various agri-stakeholders including men and women farmers, extension agents, agricultural scientists, agro-industries, agri-financing institutions, policy makers and planners in Indian agriculture. The portal is an objective of the project ‘Supporting knowledge management systems in Indian agriculture’.
The aim of this portal is to act as a one stop entry point for knowledge management (KM) in Indian agriculture, by aggregating existing KM systems and sharing information from local, national and global levels. The portal will compile, document and publish information related to agro-ecology, scientific crop production, market and weather information and act as a Decision Support System, i.e. providing options for inquiries related to, for example, crop production and marketing decisions. This portal will aim to strengthen the content of the existing knowledge management systems. On this portal high quality research and local knowledge will be aggregated and made available in an appropriate manner to Indian smallholder farmers and to knowledge intermediaries.
