  • 5. 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
    • 6. Increasing income levels and educational levelsraising demand for better food
    • 7. The current high prices are an indicator
    • 8. 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
    • 9. Reduce wastages – Storage & transportation

    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

  • 18. 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
    • 19. Adilabad, A. P.
    • 20. Bhilwara, Rajasthan
    • 21. 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”.
  • 22. 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
