One of the key tenants of Food Security is the ability to have a robust supply chain. This is only possible when there is a system that tracks both the supply and demand sides of ecosystem. Key to the supply side of the equation is the need to have a registry of all the food producers in that region. This includes the ability to not only have the name and address but also the need to have a clear understanding of the land they hold and the crops they grow. This also helps on the various interventions needed during the Pre-Harvest processes.

This database, so has the ability to talk to and integrate with other public databases, like land records, weather forecast and Agri Intelligence Systems can help both the procurement agencies in estimating the requirements of the entire value chain and for various government agencies to also have a validated database of producers who can be part of their various welfare programs.
