About Green Alerts
The term “Green Alerts” was introduced by Mr. Dilip Sinha, a Sugarcane Specialist, in 2017. He conceived the idea of establishing an alert system to serve the interests of farmers. In 2018, www.greenalerts.in was launched, offering Weather Alerts and Agro Advisory services to farmers in select regions of Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, and Madhya Pradesh. Building upon this initial success, a formal Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed with the India Meteorological Department on March 29, 2024, to expand the scope of services under the Panchayat Mausam Sewa initiative.
