Agriculture is the primary source of livelihood for about 58% of the population of India. While Agri exports from the country are expected to cross over $60 billion by 2022, the Government also plans to double the farmer’s income by 2022. With a high rate of agricultural land and diverse agro-climate conditions, the Indian ecosystem encourages the cultivation of multifarious crops. From fruits to various food grain products, India’s agriculture segment is growing by leaps and bounds and also poised for huge growth in the future. These have also attracted various startups and companies, who have come up with various technologies to support the agricultural society and make it flourish more.
Recently, Finance Minister Sitharaman declared the third tranche of the economic stimulus package and agriculture was one of the primary focuses of it. The government has allocated some reforms and fund for strengthening farm gate infrastructure of India.
