Agriculture is undoubtedly the largest livelihood provider in rural India. As we
enter a new post WTO Scenario and IT revolution, new inventions are
happening day by day in every sphere. Agriculture is not culture now, it is Agri
Business! Agriculture constitutes over 25% of India's GDP. In recent years
much emphasis has been given by The Ministry of Agriculture on
commercializing agricultural production in the country. Adequate production
and distribution of food has become a high priority and global concern. In the
fast changing world and increasing competition in a globalised economy,
there is a need for exploiting the available resources to the maximum level
and use of best technologies available world over, to cope up with domestic
demand of food and also to target export market.
Concurrently we are also organizing DairyTech India 2015, International Poultry & Livestock Expo 2015, Graintech India 2015, FloraTech India 2015, and Rural Energy India 2015.
This will be particularly relevant in South India, where farmers grow a number
of crops, but have technical constraints in enhancing production and
productivity because of inadequate exposure to high technology & inputs
coupled with advanced production practices, logistics and marketing. In
addition, shortage of labour is a major concern for progressive farmers of
South India who are ready to offer more wages to labourers. Therefore, they
are forced to become machinery-dependant in their farm operations. As a
result, South India is emerging as one of the hottest destinations as well as a
strong market with buying potential for farm machinery and equipment. In
order to introduce latest mechanization & technological innovations, AgriTech
India 2015 is proved to be an ideal platform to launch your products &
services among thousands of farmers & agro entrepreneurs to throng this
Govt. Policies and Programmes :
New technological advances in agricultural practices have become all the
more important against the backdrop of a series of programmes that have
been launched by the Government of India to attain 4 per cent annual growth
in agriculture and to double the production of horticulture crops during the ongoing
twelfth five-year plan. The main thrust of all these programmes is on
taking Indian agriculture to greater heights of excellence through spread of
latest technology and modern practices on-farm and off-farm that would
cover pre and post harvest activities, marketing and exports.
Global Scenario of Agriculture/Farm Mechanization :
The BRICS Nations i.e. Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa along
with Japan and Turkey are joining the ranks of heavy weight agricultural
According to UNACOMA, India and China were confirmed in 2011 as the
countries with the greatest take-up of tractors with sales of 430,000 and
400,000 units respectively in the power categories over 30 hp and not
counting the vast numbers of self-propelled machinery. Europe was shifted to
become second world market at 136,000 tractors ahead of the United States
at 84,000 units with the arrival of new and important majors on the scene.
FederUNACOMA President Massimo Goldoni, the head of the
manufacturers' federation, told a press conference in Bologna, “The
countries reporting the best markets trends for agricultural machinery are
those showing the positive economic trends and are thus given possibilities
for installing specific support policies for agriculture and mechanization.” The
figures for Europe and the USA confirm the close relationship between
general economic conditions and the mechanization market with growth in
tractor sales in the more economically solid countries like India and China. Hence India has emerged as New Agricultural Machinery Mega Market.
After the grand success of our 6th AgriTech India 2014, where besides India,
companies participated from 28 countries, we, Media Today Group are
organizing the 7th edition of AgriTech India 2015 during 21st to 23rd August
2015 at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC), Bangalore, India,
which is going to pump in more value additions to the existing technology from
all over the world.
AgriTech India 2015 exhibition will, therefore, be an eye opener for the growers, wholesalers, importers, exporters and all other stakeholders of every segment of Agriculture and Farm Machinery, Equipment and allied sectors who want to expand and diversify their activities.
