-- It is a demonstration of the geospatial technology towards assessment of biomass availability from crop residues.
-- Biomass maps may be used by the officials / policymakers of the concerned departments and industry developers to assess the
availability of crop residues over an area
-- It helps mainly in identification of prospective area / zone for setting up industries.
