    The portal links to http://agmarknet.nic.in/ for the "Market Information"
    From there "Today's Mandi Prices" links to "Market-wise Daily Report On"
    How accurate are these daily reports?

    Agrisnet is not of much use to the farmers, at least its query portion. I had posted a question last month but the same is still unattended. The site shows that it was forwarded to the concerned department. This forwarding too took 2 days. Purely sarkari system! On inquiry for the delay, pat came the reply ‘this is a new portal hence these are initial hiccups’.
