First of all we thank our project guide Mr. T Radhakrishnan, CTO, IIITM-K for guiding us throughout this project. Also we would like to con- vey our special thanks to Dr. Venkatesh Choppella, Associate Professor, IIITM-K, Mr. Praveen Kumar G, Associate instructor, Mr. David Math- ews, Associate instructor, and other instructors of Web Technology course for their constant support and motivation throughout the course of the project.
We thank all our friends and all others who had signi\ufb01cantly contributed for our project. Without proper guidance from them it would have been im- possible to complete this project. Above all we thank God Almighty for blessing us to work with these resourceful people and for the learning expe- rience we gained.
Agriculture market information can play an important role both in improving food marketing system and in promoting food security. Up-to date market information can enable farmers to negotiate with traders from a position of greater strength and can also facilitate the spatial distribution of products from rural areas to towns and between markets.
Well-analyzed historical market information enables farmers to make planting decisions, including those related to new crops. It also permits traders to make better decisions regarding the viability of intra and perhaps inter-seasonal storage. Accurate market information can assist agricultural planners, policy makers and administrators to make well-informed decisions about interventions necessary to promote food security.
is an interactive system intended for farmers, academicians, agricul- tural scientists , policy makers etc,which will equip them in taking better decisions about choosing the market to sell the farm produce, determining the route logistics and future plantations.
The system is designed such that all the information stated above can be accessed through a single interface. To address this purpose, the power of GIS is combined with the advantages of database and the system is implemented with open source technologies.
At present we have many systems that displays market informa- tion, but these systems give the market information in tabular form. The web enabled dynamic agricultural market information system dis- plays the result on a map. At IIITM-K project wing a similar system is being designed on similar lines using proprietary software.
