Farm Machinery Technology Summit:
The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) organized the third edition of the Summit on Farm Machinery Technology, which was held at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi
- The objective of the CII Summit on Farm Machinery Technology is to address the challenges faced by the sector and chart a growth path for it.
- Farm mechanization is an important aspect of agriculture, as it enhances productivity and availability of food grains, increases agriculture exports, mitigates labour shortage and facilitates judicious use of scarce natural resources.
- The Indian Government has set an ambitious target of doubling the availability of farm power to 4.0 KW per ha by the end of 2030, which presents a tremendous opportunity for all stakeholders in the sector.
- The CII Summit on Farm Machinery Technology provides a platform to deliberate on technology issues and find solutions to overcome them.
