The portal operates two e-learning platforms providing learning opportunity to scientists and extension workers at their time and space. This portal also caters to information needs of exporters and farmers through the trade information system. Another feature of the portal is the indexing of mandi prices of paddy from regulated market yards (from Agmarknet). Policy makers can directly access area, production, productivity trends of last four decades up to district level.
This portal is an example of harnessing the enormous potential of ICT strategies to manage the voluminous knowledge in the existing ICAR (AICRIP) set up. The vision of RKMP is to serve a wide range of stakeholders and help in better planning to realize higher productivity & production of rice through improved knowledge and skill from the portal.
