Over 60% of India’s population still depends on agriculture for their primary livelihoods. Recently, the agriculture sector has faced severe challenges including:

Some of these are

  • Decreasing soil productivity due lack of focus on sustainability
  • Weather related uncertainties
  • Market related  uncertainties; falling prices of agri-commodities
  • Slow progress on technology and practices fronts
  • Farm level crop diversity has been neglected in last few decades
  • Lack of access to financial services suited to cash flows of individual farmers
