Ending poverty and hunger by 2030 being one of the core objectives of Sustainable Development Goals (World Bank 2015) speaks of doubling the income and the need for improved agricultural productivity and climate resilience, strengthened links to markets, agribusiness growth, and rural nonfarm incomes. Reliable and real time information related to agriculture is essential to address the agriculture growth in developing nations. Agricultural statistics including holding by distribution, size, tenure, land use, means of production are increasingly becoming important. The quality of available agricultural data and the methods by which such data is collected are weak in several developing countries. Geo-stamping approach i.e., the Remote Sensing (RS), Geographic information System (GIS) and Global Positioning System (GPS) intervention adopted in conformation with existing work flow for crop-area enumeration has yielded reliable results.
