The eleventh agricultural census, which will gather information on a variety of factors including operating holdings, was officially launched on Thursday by Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar. The data will be gathered via smartphones and tablets for the first time.

According to a statement from the agriculture ministry, fieldwork for the Eleventh Agricultural Census (2021–22) will begin in August 2022. Every five years, the agriculture census is conducted; it is now being completed after a delay caused by the corona pandemic.

The ministry is putting its 1970–1971 farm census plan into action. The reference year used for the census' ninth iteration was 2015–16.

The agricultural census is the primary source of data on a number of factors, including the quantity and size of operational holdings, their distribution by class, their land use, tenancy patterns, and cropping patterns, among other things.

According to the ministry, data gathering for the agricultural census will be done for the first time on cell phones and tablets to ensure that it is completed on time.

The majority of states have digitalized their land records and surveys, which will speed up the gathering of information for the agricultural census.
