For the smooth running of the mission, it is mandatory to monitor the nursery activities and evaluate them based on
the feedback from the nursery in-charges. It will reduce the risk of seedling damages and help the department to
make proactive decisions.
We have provided a mobile app to collect all the activities on a daily basis and that will help the division officers to track the plant status remotely.
The daily report images from one particular nursery can be selected and can review the nursery activities and plant growth so that the department can support the nurseries if they need any additional support or service.
Our department officials: Conservator of Forest, District Forest Officer, Assistant Conservator of Forest
and Forest Range Officer regularly inspect the forest nurseries across Tamil Nadu and report on our web plantation monitoring platform.
Regular inspection activities are carried out to address the seedling quality issues and to offer proactive actions to complete the mission without fail.
