Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh today released an app, Crop Manager for Rice-based Systems (CMRS), for better crop and nutrient management for Bihar farmers.

CMRS provides irrigated and rainfed farmers with rice-based cropping systems in Bihar with a crop and nutrient management guideline customised to the needs of an individual farmer, an official statement said.

Singh released the app in a programme organised at ICAR-RCER in Patna, it added.

The app is designed for use by extension workers, crop advisers, input providers and providers of services who interview a farmer using a personal computer, smartphone, or tablet, it added.

CMRS was adapted, evaluated and verified in Bihar through collaboration of Indian Rice Research Institute (IRRI) with the Indian Council for Agricultural Research- RCER (ICAR) and other institutes.
