Agricultural Census is a quinquennial Census which was first launched by the Government of India in the entire country including J&K during the year 1970-71. This Census is completed in a phased manner and it comprises three phases. The first phase of the scheme is based on complete enumeration study, whereas the other two phases are based on survey study.
The crux of the scheme lies in knowing about the size of the agricultural holding and the number of operational holders in the state/UT. The Agricultural Census is a large Statistical Operation and the information collected through it is quite significant for the policy planners both at national as well at State/UT level.
The 11th Agriculture Census 2021-22 will chart a new course in data collection and dissemination as the traditional method of using pen and papers would be replaced by an Android App and web based system.
