Technology based agriculture is need of the day. Emerging trend in agri-tech in India and other countries, adoption of technology by the farmers, agri-tech products knowledge, developments across different product categories and agri-tech products awareness creation through workshops and farmers’ meet etc. are the factors to be considered for betterment of the agriculture sector in India. Farm mechanization and agri-tech products adoption at different levels has to happen in a big way to address the issue of farm labour shortage and also improve the efficiency of crop cultivation activities.Some of the recent development of Indian

agri-tech system are: adoption of Information Technology (IT), GPS technology, irrigation systems, breeding, tissue culture, Nano-technology and shifting towards organic plant growth promoters and protection products etc. Today’s agriculture needs not only high tech products but also use of quality inputs, conservation of soil, water, environment and marketing facilities. Further, there is an urgent need for facilitation of sourcing and adoption of right agri-tech products and also farmers’ awareness creation on better agricultural practices for better agriculture in India.

  1. Doubling farm income needs fresh thinking - Centrum report

    Rising food inflation remains a cause of worry and a drop in the procurement of grains by the government in May remains a key concern for farmers, according to a Centrum Broking report. The broader worry, however, remains on ignoring declining farmers’ income and initiatives in incentivizing them to produce more to avoid a situation where India needs to import food grains from outside as was seen earlier in 2007 and 2016. "FMCG industry deliver strong growth only when the poor people have more money in their hand to spend. When this happens, as a result, the demand becomes huge and the economics of the company does not need any kind of boosters," said Centrum after discussions with Devinder Sharma, a trained agriculture scientist. The government has taken various initiatives such as providing subsidies in fertilizers, deciding minimum support prices (MSPs) for crops (reviewing before every season) and E‐Nam procurement benefits, yet the farmers in the country are facing severe distress. Sharma suggested a few recommendations - more focus on farm mechanization, price assurance to further increase production, and assured income in the hands of farmers which in turn may benefit the economy by large. "The country’s supply chain is production push driven. There are multiple startups working in the right spirit to enable farmers with crop education and monitoring. The change in the mindset has to be brought to the secondary side of the supply chain where the market has to be pushed to be more demand-driven," said Udit Sangwan, co-founder, Agrigator, an agricultural supply chain platform. "This will bridge the information gap and give better visibility on consumer expectations resulting in better planning of crops at the farmer's end and in turn giving better returns." According to the report, improving agriculture contribution and output could become a growth engine for the Indian economy if the entire ecosystem is thought afresh as traditional systems have had a limited role in doubling farmer income.

      The Union government sees that small and marginal farmers need affordable machineries and technologies. This will help them to come out with value-added products with export potential. In her address at the 7th International Exhibition and Conference EIMA Agrimach India 2022 in Bengaluru, Union Minister of State for Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Shobha Karandlaje, pointed out that last year India produced 314 million metric tonne of cereals and 334 mmt of fruits and vegetables. What the country needs now is affordable and quality food processing, agro marketing and agro export avenues. “We should not restrict ourselves on how to increase production.” Calling upon equipment manufacturers and technology developers, both from within the country and outside, she urged them to manufacture affordable machinery for food processing. She pointed out that much of agri & horticulture produce goes waste for challenges in value addition or market access. Instead of food going waste, we should think of exporting to countries with limited food production, she said…
