ICAR Geo-portal is an initiative to make geo-spatial data related to Agriculture to all the stakeholders. This portal makes it available rich geo-referenced data collected by ICAR institutions on climate, soil, cropping systems, land-use pattern etc. The following layers will be made available initially on Geo-portal: (i) base layers; (ii) area, production and productivity of major crops; (iii) soil maps (1:1 million) of NBSS&LUP; (iv) Agro-ecological regions and sub-regions of NBSS&LUP; (v) Vulnerability map and climate layers of CRIDA; (vi) ICAR Institutes/Regional Centres locations etc. Visualization of spatial data will be made available under open access, however, there could be some restrictions on downloading of layers due to national security, IPR issues etc.

About ICAR

The Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) is an autonomous organisation under the Department of Agricultural Research and Education (DARE), Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India. Formerly known as Imperial Council of Agricultural Research, it was established on 16 July 1929 as a registered society under the Societies Registration Act, 1860 in pursuance of the report of the Royal Commission on Agriculture. The ICAR has its headquarters at New Delhi.

The Council is the apex body for co-ordinating, guiding and managing research and education in agriculture including horticulture, fisheries and animal sciences in the entire country. With 100 ICAR institutes and 70 agricultural universities spread across the country this is one of the largest national agricultural systems in the world.

The ICAR has played a pioneering role in ushering Green Revolution and subsequent developments in agriculture in India through its research and technology development that has enabled the country to increase the production of foodgrains by 5 times, horticultural crops by 9.5 times, fish by 12.5 times , milk 7.8 times and eggs 39 times since 1951 to 2014, thus making a visible impact on the national food and nutritional security. It has played a major role in promoting excellence in higher education in agriculture. It is engaged in cutting edge areas of science and technology development and its scientists are internationally acknowledged in their fields.
