22 September 2022, New Delhi: The Associated Chambers of Commerce & Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) works as a conduit between the industry and the Government. Agriculture being an important sector for the Indian economy, the industry body has planned to organise a National Conference on Enhancing Agricultural Productivity: Integration of Improved Seeds and Agri Inputs. The conference is scheduled for 12th of October 2022 at New Delhi.
The conference will provide a platform for industry leaders, practitioners, scientists, organized agriculturists, policy makers, MSME’s and NGOs to discuss and share experiences on successes, and to deliberate the challenges to nutrition and food security. The highlight of the conference will be G2G, B2G and B2B meetings projecting the way forward to ensure nutritional security keeping social and commercial interests in mind.
Farming inputs contributes about 40–50% of total yield increase for most of the crops. Combining use of advanced science and technology for improved seed cultivars, effective farm management in crop production, and judicious use of fertilisers are essential with a favourable policy environment which is supportive to farmers.
The Government of India has taken various initiatives for strengthening the seed production value chain through enhanced availability of quality seeds & planting material of crops to farmers across the country through various programs. However, the awareness campaign for execution of new agri-inputs is the need of the hour for yielding more productivity.
