ABOUT

Since the ‘Green Revolution’ period, Indian agriculture has come a long way in the recent decades. Nearly 56% of the Indian population depends on agriculture for their livelihood, but poverty and malnutrition continue to affect millions of Indians. Fragmented land holdings, low yield per unit crop, scarcity of credit, increasing food demand, inadequate facilities for transportation and storage, malpractices in unorganised agri-markets are some of the many afflictions which saddle the Indian agriculture sector.

 

Gross value added by agriculture and allied industries in FY18 stood at $275B. Technology based applications in agriculture is expected to have an economic impact of ~ $50B annually by 2025. With over 350+ Agritech startups leading the way across different models like market linkage, precision farming, agri-fintech platforms, farming-as-a-service, post-harvest technologies; the fortunes of smallholder Indian farmers could improve significantly.

Whether you are an AgriTech entrepreneur or a professional in this space, 'The Promise of AgriTech: Food for 1.32 billion and beyond..' is an event to look forward to.
