Additional Information



The Indian agricultural sector needs to be revitalised to meet the demand of food and nutritional security of a growing population amidst challenging situations. While the first Green Revolution helped in meeting the production demands in the 1960s, the next revolution needs to focus on holistic development of the sector and sustainable in the long run. The next revolution has to help the small and marginal farmers in sustaining their livelihood. It will need to provide end-to-end services to the farmer, linking him to the market and facilitating access to better technology and other resources. The dairy revolution in the country is a prime example of such an approach. An inclusive market oriented approach can revolutionise the agricultural sector and attract the youth to take up to agriculture as another business venture. An agribusiness development path involving greater productivity growth throughout the entire agribusiness value chain provides for a solid foundation for rapid, inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction. Improving the skill levels of the farmers can help in diversifying and minimising the risk from the sector. This will also foster an ecosystem for innovations from within the community.
