    • Estimation of food demand
      Million metric tonnes
      In India, Food demand likely to nearly double from ~440 in 2007 to ~850 million metric tons in 2020
      Demand Situation
      • The world has to double food production by 2030
      • Increasing income levels and educational levelsraising demand for better food
      • The current high prices are an indicator
      • Meat consumption expected to increase rapidly (1 unit needs 5 units of crop output)
      1.5x
      Cereals
      1.8x
      Vegetable & Fruits
      Choice to increase production of food, fibre and feed to meet demand?
      • Bring more land under cultivation
      • Reduce wastages – Storage & transportation
      • Develop & deliver suitable high yielding seeds with Improved agronomic practices
      • Improve per unit of resources i.e. land & Water

      Agriculture productivity across countries kg/ha
      India’s low yields across developed and developing markets offer room for improvement & Public Private Partnerships
      Seeds & Technology to play a significant role in enhancing yield – Plant breeding, biotechnology and improved agronomic practices offer hope

    • A balanced, holistic approach can make difference
      Seeds
      Technology, research critical to constantly improve seeds
      Production
      Improved seeds/SRR
      PPP Opportunity

      Fertilizer Usage high but scope to improve balanced use
      Area
      Plant nutrition
      Integrated management - education

      Productivity
      Irrigation
      Well irrigation overused, canals investment intensive
      Capital Intensive but critical
      Agronomic practices
      Training can play crucial role
      Role of Mechanization
      Role of Private Sector (PPP) & Technology
      Significant growth potential
      Moderate potential
      Limited potential, constrained lever

    • Potential areas of Collaborative (PPP) R&D to leverage opportunity
      7
    • Thank you for the opportunity

    • Improve Farmer Lives: India SYI - Project SHARE
      Sustainable Harvest – Agriculture, Resources & Environment
      Via increased usage of improved technology and inputs, farmer training,
      better market linkages, developing agri-infrastructure through communities
      Project Milestones (May – Jul 10)
      500 Awareness Camps for 400 farmers groups & 10,000 farmers incl. 100-acre corn & cotton crop demos, 78 women SHGs formed, seed-cum-fertilizer drill machine successfully installed
      Direct Impact 10,000 growers
      Expected Ripple Impact - 100,000 Farmers
      • Amravati, Maharashtra
      • Adilabad, A. P.
      • Bhilwara, Rajasthan
      • Bundi, Rajasthan
      Improve farmers’ lives: Bollgard increased Indian growers’
      yields by >50% and farmer incomes by >INR 10000/acre.
      SHARE Beneficiary KrushnaJanraoHarne from Amravati says “We are a family of five with only four acres. Cheap seeds gave me poor yields. But thanks to SHARE experts, quality seeds like BGII, micro-nutrients, and education on agronomic practices are fetching me higher yields. I now educate other farmers on how to lower their cost of cultivation and increase their earnings”.
    • PROJECT SUNSHINEPublic Private Partnership under the Van Bandhu Kalyan Yojanawith Govt. of GujaratImproving economic self-sufficiency & quality of life of tribal farmers
      96,000 farmer beneficiaries
      500+ villages
      Five tribal districts
      Monsanto’s role:
      Distribution of Dekalb high-yielding corn hybrid seeds
      Farmer education on agronomy, pest management and post harvest care
      Critical project management
      Outstanding Results
      • Three-fold increase in yield (1500 kg/acre vs. only 500 kg/acre with conventional seeds)
      • Incremental income of more than Rs. 120 Cr. to farmers
      • Partnership in its third successful year
    • PROJECT GOLDEN RAYS
      India’s largest corn farmer Public Private Partnership
      with State Govt. of Rajasthan
      780,000 tribal farmer beneficiaries across five districts
      Doubling corn yields Doubling incomes Improved farmer lives
      Project Golden Rays beneficiary
      Farmer Velaram Garasiya
      Tindori village, Rajasthan
      Holistic approach
      • Provide improved quality of seeds
      • Enhance Crop Management Support to farmers
      • Knowledge Sharing Sessions for Dept. of Ag
      • End-industry linkages; procurement facilitation
      Velaram’s corn yields have doubled!
      (30 Q/acre with Dekalb vs. 14 Q/acre with OPV seeds)
      He is now investing the increased income in his children’s education.
    • Credit Facilitation Case: Tribal Development in Orissa
      • Initiative to help tribal farmers in Orissa gain financial independence
      • Monsanto facilitated linkages between local lenders and National Bank for Agriculture & Rural Development (NABARD)
      • Resulted in transparent, reliable credit & distribution system
      • NABARD-supported banks gave low-cost credit to buy inputs/seeds
      • Monsanto grew 100 demo plots & gave training on farming practices
      • Yields increased by 1.8 to 2 metric tons per hectare, doubling income
