Agriculture, an integral part of our culture decides the
direction of the country in terms of socio-economic development. Today, we have moved from
farming to use of automated precision methods to speed up tasks at hand.
Technology has taken over our lives and farming is no exception, adopting changes
which are efficient, accurate and productive, into its culture. Backed up by a young
scientific community teaming with innovators and entrepreneurs, encouraged by the
Government’s proactive policies to enable agriculture as a primary contributor to
GDP of our country, the field of agriculture has never shown more promise.
