Agricultural supply

The project consisted of the operation of the “Agricultural, Aquaculture and Forest Supply Information System” of the Colombian Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MADR, for its abbreviation in Spanish). This project was aimed at the generation of statistical information on area, production, yield and other variables of interest to the agricultural sector at national, departmental and municipal level, for the year of 2013. The project included the construction of the Municipal Agricultural Assessments for 2013 and the forecasts for 2014, as well as specific investigations for the registration of the productions of cotton, sugarcane, milk, commercial forest plantations and the lifting of the national fish survey. The methodology for the operation of the system included sampling techniques, product census, regional consensus, administrative records and exercises to strengthen the municipal GIS.
