Crop plots derived from satellite images correspond to shape and extent in the field and correlate with land records. Crop statistics generated using geospatial tools are authentic and accurate and traceable but do not correlate with the existing data compiled from traditional methods which have problems in terms of type, extent, and acreage. The land use details also appear to have not been updated. The methodology adopted has been able to provide reliable information on the basic production unit, reasons for not cultivation, farming infrastructure, farming practice, availability of agriculture inputs, and geographic variation of crops. Keeping in view the goal of doubling the income and improved agricultural productivity and climate resilience, geospatial tools appear to be useful for generating the reliable and real-time data. The technology can also be conveniently used for consolidating the spatial information of land records, particularly the holding information.
