Agricultural Routine Data System(ARDS) is a data collection and reporting system of Tanzania’s agricultural sector.
The agricultural extension officers in villages and wards collect data during their field work and submit them in a regular interval to the headquarter of the Local Government Authorities (LGA)
The data are then formally registered to the ARDS database once approved by the Regional Office. The work takes place regularly at frequencies of monthly, quarterly and annual.
These data are assembled to the Integrated Reports by ARDS Web Portal. Collected data are used at various levels of the Government, LGAs, Regional Administrations and Ministries for monitoring plans and implementation.
This ARDS Web Portal is operated by Monitoring and Evaluation Thematic Working Group, Agriculture Sector Development Programme 2.
