Agriculture and Livestock Development Section under Pokhara Metropolitan has been providing ICT based services for overall agriculture production management and information dissemination. The Agriculture Information Management System has now been upgraded to a Dynamic Online Market Platform with incorporation of market information and database management. The platform has brought all the agriculture stakeholders, including agriculture input suppliers and market agents into a single platform facilitating web based interaction and digital transactions for effective market management.
A field visit was conducted by the agriculture students team representing DreamWork Solution for sharing information about the system and its usability among 60 Agriculture Input Suppliers of Pokhara Metropolitan. The students were guided about the operation of the software via zoom meeting, and were recruited for 5 days survey activity.
The students visited the agriculture input suppliers, interacted with them and provided orientation on registration, data entry and market participation. The registered input suppliers will be using the system to enter the information of products available for sale, and identify all the possible buyers registered in the system. This will create a direct linkage among buyers and sellers.
