Hackathons can be a solution to agricultural problems

Tomar, who was the chief guest at the event organized by the Pusa-based Indian Institute of Agricultural Research (IARI) under the Union Ministry of Agriculture and Farmer Welfare and the Council of Agricultural Research of India (ACAR), said Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke on research and innovation in agriculture. Attracting attention, Agri India suggested organizing a hackathon. He said the PM stressed the need for the use of digital technology in the field of agriculture and believed that the problems of the agricultural sector could be solved through agri hackathon.

New dimensions joining the agricultural sector

"We need to ensure that the agricultural sector is more profitable, that the youth are attracted to agriculture, that crops are diversified, that the use of fertilizers is gradually declining, that we are moving faster towards organic farming and micro-irrigation," he added. We can reduce the cost of farming, move farmers to more expensive crops, get the full potential of technology, increase productivity, cultivate according to global standards and enrich farmers by exporting more and more. We can ensure the contribution of agriculture to the GDP.

He said that there is no shortage of farmers' labor, the need today is to add new dimensions to the agricultural sector and agri startups can make a huge contribution in this regard.
