The training focused mainly on the collection of data on the number of Agricultural Operational Holders, its land utilization, Tenancy status and irrigation facilities available etc.
Agricultural Census is a quinquennial Census that was first launched by the Government of India in the entire country including J&K in the year 1970-71. This Census is conducted in a phased manner and comprises three phases. The first phase of the scheme is based on a complete enumeration study, whereas the other two phases are based on a 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 policy planners both at the 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 paper would be replaced by Android App and web-based system.
