The Department of Agrarian Development has taken steps to register maize farmers online.
The measure has been initiated to streamline the maize cultivation ahead of the upcoming Maha season.
The maize cultivation was affected severely during the last Maha season due to the lack of urea fertiliser.
The Department is hoping to use the online registrations, to determine the number of maize farmers, the amount of fertiliser needed by farmers, the amount of land use for cultivation and the expected harvest in a season.
The Department said the registrations will help collect accurate data and also will help systematically improve maize cultivation.
