eAgriculture India

  • Introduction

    Since the Green Revolution, Indian agriculture has been progressing steadily in terms of productivity and growth despite various challenges before it. Modern farming practices and inclusive technologies have been implemented in many parts of rural India to foster rural growth. Wireless communication networks and GIS-based agro-software technology are reaching rural India giving them access to vital and updated information on weather, farming technologies, latest know-how, commodity prices, market trends, international trade, etc.

    Despite the usage of advanced ICT tools in many parts of rural India, there are several villages where advanced farming technologies, and interactive communications networks haven’t reached yet. Access to these technologies will help secure livelihood of many farmers and consequently build a stronger nation and economy.

    Building upon the achievements of previous editions of eAgriculture2007 and 2008, and to take the momentum ahead, eAgricultureINDIA 2009 calls for deliberations on the unsolved issues. The event will explore ways through which current agricultural practices can be made more efficient with the help of ICT tools.
