Agriculture is vital to the worldâ€™s economy, that isÂ growing at more than 7% and contribution of agriculture being 17% to the GDP, the scenario of agriculture is making a shift in India. Emerging trends in the Indian agriculture is leading towards diversification which is opening up prospects for Horticulture, Floriculture etc. The government policies of liberalization and globalization have opened up new avenues for the modernization of agriculture.
The Indian Government is working rigorously to enhance the lives of millions of farmers from day one. Even though corporate and start ups are working on farm to market products, the introduction of agri. market platform by the government will make the entire ecosystem of trade very effective.
TheÂ Indian government hasÂ cleared INRÂ 200 crore for setting up an online agriculture market place to integrate hundreds of mandis across India to give farmers better access to market prices for their produce.Â The younger generation today is leaving their desk jobs to get into farming and making an impact by introducing technology to the field. The conventional supply chain stretches from input dealers to farmers to aggregators, wholesalers, and retailers, has seen a new trend in past 6-7 years; namely, the entry of major corporate firms and start ups. These players are entering at the front end in organized food processing and retailing, as well as at the back end as input service and hence completing the loop for farmers.
