To fulfill the dream of our Honorable PM of “doubling farmers’ income” by the year 2022, a committee was constituted by the Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers Welfare. The committee suggested that to achieve this goal, there are three important variables, namely, productivity gains, reduction in the cost of cultivation and remunerative price. Consequently, the strategy platform is built by the following concerns- sustainability of production, monetization of farmers’ produce, re-strengthening of extension services, recognizing agriculture as an enterprise and enabling it to operate as such, by addressing various structural weaknesses.
Agriculture Conclave will address the above-mentioned concerns through a conference and exhibition to be held during the India International Science Festival. Topics related to residue burning, organic farming, and soil and water management shall be addressed.
