  • 4. Glimpse of Changing face of Agriculture in North East. Black paper Production in Tea Gardens of Assam Commercial Assam Lemon Production
  • 5. Glimpse of Changing face of Agriculture in North East. A buzzing Betal nut market in Assam
  • 6. Glimpse of Changing face of Agriculture in North East. ( Contd.) Strawberry, Pineapple, Turmeric Production in Meghalaya
  • 7. Glimpse of Changing face of Agriculture in North East.( Contd.) Apple, Kiwi and Orange Production in Arunachal Pradesh
  • 8. Glimpse of Changing face of Agriculture in North East.( Contd.) Naga King Chilly cultivation and Contract growing of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants in Nagaland

  • 12. Some potentials unexplored: Carambola Jack fruit
  • 13. Some potentials unexplored: Roselle or Assam Susur
  • 14. Possibilities for investment :  Rice & Mustard processing ( e.g. Modern Rice Milling)  Contract Farming & Aggregation ( Pre-processing ) – High Value Horticulture / Medicinal & Aromatic plants.  Fruit Processing plants.  Flavor/ Essence extraction ( from wild minor fruits and herbs ) plants.  Wine manufacturing unit ( e.g. Kiwi wine )  Silkworm pupae processing unit for food.
  • 15. The Major risk of Investment in IVC: •People Risk ( e.g. Institution building ) •Process risk ( e.g. Dispersed production, Low volume /market holding, Critical actors ) •Technological risk (e.g. Smart pre-processing & packaging ) •Financial Risk ( e.g. High Transaction cost ) •Policy Risk ( e.g. Land consolidation; Diversification to HVC Vs Traditional ) •Political Risk ( e.g. Acceptance of corporate! Sub regional issues)
  • 16. The Road Map:  VCA with detail mapping of production clusters, associated institution and infrastructures.  Collation of reliable production statistics with contracting and aggregation possibilities.  Regional level entity (PPP) for investment in terminal market and management of franchisee vendor network.  Capacity building* of franchisee vendor institutions for contracting, aggregation and pre-processing / packaging.  Infrastructure, credit and technological assistance to vendor institutions. ( Looking for synergy ! )
  • 17. Suggested project components:  Technical Assistance : VCA with GIS based mapping; Development of dynamic database for ICT based market information services; Terminal and Export Market Analysis; TNA and Environment Analysis for CB framework development.  Institution & Capacity building  Technology & credit facilitation ( e.g. aggregation and PHM)  Infrastructure Assistance ( e.g. For IVC in identified HVC only )
