About the Seminar

The Agricultural Sector continues to be the largest provider of livelihood in India. The fourth advance estimates for the year 2020-2021 released by the Department of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Government of India show a record 308.65 million tonnes of food grain production in India.

The initiatives brought by the Government post-independence and the advancement of technology has accelerated the growth of the agricultural economy. With the advent of Globalization in the 1990s, modern Agro technologies were introduced, leading to the rise in trade of agricultural exports.

However, Globalization failed to contribute towards reducing poverty and other social inequalities in the country. In addition, the increasing population and increasing average income might lead to an increase in the demand for food within the limited cultivable land.

Further, to achieve Sustainable Development Goals, India needs to prioritize policies that end hunger, achieve food security, and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. Legislative gaps and lack of proper implementation of the existing laws have impacted the agricultural production, availability of agri inputs, agricultural marketing and supply chains rendering the farmers vulnerable to agrarian crisis.

In this context, this conference is held with an objective to deliberate on the following themes and provide measures to resolve the issues faced by the agricultural system in India.
