The central government is focusing on “Good Agriculture Practice” to help the Indian agricultural sector, according to Manoj Ahuja, Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare. Ahuja said there is a worldwide concern about having sustainable agriculture and sound agricultural practices, as well as environmental concerns while speaking at a FICCI event on the “Scope of Public-Private Partnerships in Agriculture.”

“While the government has not yet released a policy in this regard, we hope to create one on ‘Good Agriculture Practice. We’d work with the industry on it and have a policy in place, he continued.

According to Ahuja, the administration has made micro-irrigation a top priority. “To build a straightforward system for farmers, we will design a model that offers both quick financing and subsidies.” He added, “We must address these problems.

The secretary continued by saying that farmers must have access to straightforward solutions to their issues via digital channels. He continued, “We have faith in the abilities of the farmer, and we can assist them by offering non-financial assistance in the form of IT solutions.”

Farmers would benefit if we could offer these technological treatments through a single open source, according to Ahuja. Ahuja remarked that the government is also worried about the quality of agricultural inputs and that actions must be taken to further improve it in response to industry complaints.

In order to help farmers, he said, we can set up NABL accredited labs through PPP or workable gap funding, as well as reliable IT systems for sampling and testing different crops, fertilizers, and pesticides.

The four crucial “I’s” for an agri-policy framework are inputs, infrastructure, investment, and institutions, according to Vijaya Lakshmi Nadendla, Joint Secretary Marketing, Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, and MD of SFAC.

Chairman of the FICCI Task Force on FPOs Pravesh Sharma said: “This is important to understand, particularly in India where private ownership of agriculture is nearly complete. The government-created policy framework has a big impact on how money flows into agriculture, markets function, and technology travels.”

According to TR Kesavan, Group President of TAFE Ltd. and Chairman of the FICCI National Agriculture Committee, India can do much more in the agriculture sector if the public and private sectors collaborate.
