  1. 1. GRAINNOVATION R&D IN AGRICULTURE Team Members: Aamir Lokhandwala Rohit Pal Pooja Agarwal Mohit Upadhyay Parvez Nophel Manthan
  2. 2. Contemporary Scenario  Research and innovative activities in India lack severity.  Liberalization of the economy took place.
  3. 3. Lack of Institutions promoting Research and development. Lack of funding Lack of Expertise Problem Statement • Lack of application of R&D in field of agriculture. • Lack of Institution with enough facilities • Lack of quality of research in existing university.
  4. 4.  Reason for Selecting Specific topic: 1. Agriculture is the backbone of Indian economy. 2. Lack of output of current R&D section of the same. 3. Agricultural patents constitute only 2% of total patents of India. 4. Growing population and increasing demand.
  5. 5. Proposed Solution  Maintaining a centralized record to keep track of the daily activities going on in all the institutions and weekly assessment of this record.  Applying principles of engineering and physics in combination with agriculture.  Various sections in different institutions targeting different agricultural practices across India should be developed and indigenous practices should be combined with scientific approach.  Cash crops and food crops research must be done separately and farmers be educated and made aware of better techniques of irrigation and usage of new chemical fertilizers.
  6. 6. Stake holder of agriculture Government Development and implementation of policy and legislation on agriculture, environment, promotion of innovation. Parastatals/Statutory bodies/Science Councils Scientific research, technology generation and transfer(or promotion of the application of knowledge and innovation) in agriculture, bio-diversity, agro processing, socio-economic development and impacts. Higher Education and Development Institutions Curriculum development, training, research (pure and adaptive) and technology transfer. Organized Agriculture Technology transfer; cooperatives provide a commercial base for procurement, priority setting, facilitate resource allocation, articulating the needs of the 2nd economy. Civil Society/community based organizations Development, training, capacity strengthening, adaptive research, technology transfer, support services. Financial Institutions Lending and mortgages, Socio-Economic research and general financing to the agricultural sector.
  7. 7. Infrastructure Finance Human Resources Source of Funding Websites and internet facilities - Web designing firms or individuals in the rural areas Local govt. Land for testing of pilot projects 70,000 INR Real estate firms or small scale farmers Central govt. Seeds and other resources needed for expt. 50,000 INR Small to medium scale farmers Local govt Water and other fertilizers for pilot projects 30,000 INR Water resource management firms Disposal of agricultural waste And effluents generated 25,000 INR Health safety and environmental engineers Environment dept.
  8. 8. Impacts Calculating the total economic return coming from the application of innovative methods on fields, it’s impact on the GDP. The economic effect on the small scale farmers and industries will be evaluated separately and the return benefit to the universities will be used to sell the technologies to other nations as well. The monitoring agency will be centralized and online evaluation be done. In the first phase the new technologies will be applied on block level of panchayati institution and will then be applied to zonal and then national scale, methods will be suitably adopted and modified to the pre existing methodologies for longer sustainability.
