Rajasthan to display latest AgriTech at GRAM

To boost the local innovations which helped in the growth of crops, Global Rajasthan Agritech Meet (GRAM) will have a dedicated section showcasing the best agro technologies to visitors.

 

Spread over a large area within the GRAM, the platform will be named “Smart Farm”, said Principal Secretary, Agriculture, Neelkamal Darbari.

 

The ‘Smart Farm’ will be “a live walk-through model” highlighting the best of modern technologies in the entire agriculture value chain, starting from pre-harvest, post-harvest.

 

The Smart Farm will also look after the modern scientific storage, banking and agriculture marketing opportunities, she said.

 

The farm will also disseminate information about various Rajasthan Government policies and new initiatives in each section of value chain.

 

Other objective of the ‘Smart Farm’ will be to display the importance of resource conservation in future farming, through demonstrations, water use efficiency technologies, soil testing, organic farming and farm mechanisation.

 

The ‘GRAM’, touted as an international farmers’ event, will be held from November 9 to 11. The event will be jointly organised by the state Government and Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry.
