Telangana launches India’s first agri data exchange and management platform

In Phase-I of the project, the ADeX Platform is currently deployed in the Khammam district and will be expanded to the entire State over a period

K Taraka Ramarao, Telangana’s IT and Industries Minister, has launched India’s first Agricultural Data Exchange (ADeX) and Agriculture Data Management Framework (ADMF) in Hyderabad. The ADeX has been developed as a digital public infrastructure (DPI) for the agriculture sector and is a collaboration between the State Government, the World Economic Forum, and the Indian Institute of Science.

Speaking on the occasion, Ramarao said both ADeX and ADMF provide the right platform to ensure fair and efficient usage of agricultural data by the industry and startups and significantly boost the data economy, specifically in the agriculture sector. He said these initiatives help lead the country from the front in using innovation and technology to drive food systems transformation and improve farmers’ incomes.

According to newsonair.com, in Phase-I of the project, the ADeX Platform is currently deployed in the Khammam district and will be expanded to the entire State over a period. The software platform facilitates secure, standards-based data exchange between agricultural data users such as agri application developers and agricultural data providers like Government Agencies, Private Companies, NGOs and Universities.

ADMF has been developed after extensive public and industry consultations on data protection, management, and innovation.
