Green revolution in India: agriculture "doubles"

The spread of mechanical means on farms as a fundamental element of the new path.


The programmes launched by the Modi Government aim to increase both agricultural incomes and the value of exports of fresh and processed products by one hundred percent. The spread of mechanical means on farms as a fundamental element of the new path.

Indian agriculture is about to undergo a radical transformation. Driven by a government policy that sees agriculture as a highly strategic sector, the primary economy promises to take a leap forward in just a few years. Led by the Hindu conservative BJP, the government aims to double the incomes of farmers by 2022 (the political programme is defined as "Doubling farmers' income by 2020"), a revolution for a country in which the 60% of the approximately 1.3 billion inhabitants live in rural areas. The driving force for agricultural incomes will be the growth of productivity, but also exports of agricultural products ("Doubling agri export by 2022"), bringing the value of fresh and processed products from the current 30 billion dollars to 60 billion.

This is the framework of the sixth edition of Eima Agrimach, the international exhibition dedicated to machines and equipment for agriculture, which opened this morning in New Delhi, in the presence of the Indian Agriculture Minister Parshottam Rupala, the Director General of the Ministry of Agriculture Ashwani Kumar, the ICE Office Director in India Alessandro Liberatori, the FICCI Secretary General Manab Majumdar, the FederUnacoma President Alessandro Malavolti and the Vice President of Kubota GS Grewal

In his speech at the inaugural conference, Alessandro Malavolti, president of FederUnacoma - the Italian Federation of Agricultural Machinery Manufacturers and the organizer of the event together with the Indian Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry FICCI - highlighted that mechanization is the fundamental tool of this policy of relaunching the primary economy of the Subcontinent.

The main support for the development of mechanization in India - closed Malavolti - remains the "National Mission on Agricultural Machanization" which provides financial support for the purchase of machines and equipment and the creation of "custom hiring centers". These are centers for the supply of services for third parties, i.e. companies equipped with new-concept technologies capable of carrying out agricultural work on those farms that do not have their own mechanical means".
