India is an agricultural country, with one-third of the population dependent on the agriculture sector either directly or indirectly. Agriculture currently constitutes about 25% of India’s gross domestic product (GDP). India is the world’s second largest producer of vegetables and the third largest grower of fruit. Thanks to the country’s tropical climate, many vegetable and fruit species may be grown throughout the entire calendar year.
The agricultural equipment market in India is estimated to be valued at INR 299.1 billion (US $6.7 billion) in 2010 and has huge growth potential. The increasing credit available to farmers and the benefits of productivity due to mechanization have together created a demand for agricultural machinery. Tractors and tractor driven products account for the maximum share of usage as they represent the most commonly used farm equipment.
In India as around the world, production and distribution of food has become an increasingly important priority in recent years. With the changing agricultural scenario and new levels of global competition, India must exploit the available resources at their maximum level.
India is home to 14% of the world’s population but only 4% of its water resources, making the per capita access to water resources significantly lower than in most other countries. Efficient water use is therefore crucial for India, and over the past three decades micro-irrigation has proven to be an effective method of saving water. However, the usage of micro-irrigation technologies has remained confined not only to just a few Indian states but also to just a small percentage of farmers within those states.
Despite several serious challenges, India is a country with tremendous potential for growth in the agricultural sector. In order to fully examine the problems and possibilities, Kenes Exhibitions and Radeecal Communications present Agritech Asia 2011
For the past three decades Agritech Israel has served as a platform for bringing together more than 7,000 foreign visitors from 115 countries to interact with the leading international agriculture technology companies.
The Agritech Israel Exhibition, held once every three years, is one of the leading international events of its kind to showcase Israeli and international agriculture technologies. It traditionally attracts many Ministers of Agriculture, decision-makers, experts, practitioners and trainers in agriculture, as well as thousands of visitors from Israel and abroad.
Agritech Asia 2011 will continue this tradition of uniting the worldwide agriculture community to see at a single site the latest developments in agriculture and advanced agro-technologies, especially in the fields of irrigation, water management, arid zone agriculture, intensive greenhouse cultivation, development of new seed varieties, and organic and ecologically-oriented agriculture.
Agritech Asia will take place September 6-8, 2011 at the Bombay Exhibition Center, NSE Complex in Mumbai, India.
