All the data will be available on website as online server-based storage and only authorized persons will have access to the database. In this database data from different centres will be uploaded in the provided format on website for different traits viz. inventory, adult weight, reproduction, wool quantity, wool quality, morbidity, mortality, sale of germplasm and disposal. All database files will be available to use for the research and other analysis work at one place. Collection of such data at one place and maintaining it using digital archive system is the need of the hour. The User manual and the DBMS system is developed under the guidance of PC NWPSI/MSSP (Dr. Arun Kumar) by the team of NWPSI and MSSP.
