Agriculture sector, world over, has experienced a phenomenal growth since the mid-twentieth century. The growth, driven by Green Revolution technology, has made a significant dent on aggregate supply of food grains, ensuring food security to the growing population. The next stage of agricultural growth however, faces with many challenges in terms of sustainability.
Today, the two main challenges we are facing include the overuse of chemical & water. These problems have led to increasing awareness and a felt need for moving away from the input intensive agriculture perused during the Green revolution phase, to sustainable farming in different parts of the world.
The 10th edition of Progressive Farmers’ Meet would be an ideal opportunity to sensitize the audience of progressive farmers to adopt the latest techniques and to ensure a sustainable future.
