NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PUBLIC-PRIVATE-INDUSTRIAL CENTRIC APPROACH TO TRANSFORM AGRICULTURE
There is often ambivalence about the private sector in agriculture. But successful agricultural growth and transformations are inconceivable without a dynamic private sector serving and driving agriculture, farming and agri-food value chains.
Agricultural extension plays a key role in technology dissemination, and the private sector is increasingly active in this domain. Public knowledge services for farmers have for many years been contending with problems such as budget limitations and staff renewal. Extension delivery has become more pluralistic in this context, with different types of non-profit and for-profit actors stepping in to address opportunities and fill gaps. The role of the private sector has increased through the direct participation of input suppliers and off-takers of commodities under contract farming arrangements.
The successful agricultural growth and transformations are inconceivable without a dynamic private sector serving and driving agriculture, farming and agri-food value chains. The public- private sector partnership could play decisive roles in India’s agricultural transformation today, fostering productivity improvements and creating jobs and value in supply chains “from farm to fork” and coordination in production, mechanization, processing and marketing.
