Geospatial tools are useful for generating crop statistics. Authenticity, error-free data compilation, GIS-based area computation, traceability, and estimation of area of mixed crops are the strengths of the technologies. Updation of changing field bunds through GPS, possibility of non-availability farmers, and “not for legal purpose” appear to be the weaknesses of the method advocated. Possibility of consolidation of holding level data, upgradation of skills of personnel, and need of the data in various public and private sectors are the opportunities, and the reluctance to adopt the technology and the financial allocation from the government may pose threat to useful geospatial technology adoption for agriculture statistics.
