Challenge of area estimation well within time growing season and documenting the area of mixed crops and measuring the extent of seasonally varying crops can be conveniently and efficiently achieved by geospatial technology. As the technology is made simple, adaptability of the technology by rural youths provides opportunity for temporal financial support and thereby scalable. Cost of generating all the related data to agricultural holdings by means of geospatial technology is less than 1% for an annual household earning. Compared to cost of gathering the agricultural statistics by employing the village accountants and the governmental overheads, the cost of data generation using geospatial tools is economical.
