Understanding Priorities for India’s Agriculture Sector – Online Workshops
Online discovery workshop invitations, hosted by UK agri-tech experts for key stakeholders from across India’s agriculture sector.
On behalf of the UK Government’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development office, Agri-EPI are hosting an initiative to identify agri-tech solutions that can support India’s agriculture sector in enabling connectivity and enhancing environmental sustainability & climate resilience.
Agri-EPI Centre will be delivering a virtual workshop on behalf of Satellite Applications Catapult to understand the priorities for Indian agriculture and the role of agri-tech to address challenges and opportunities.
The aim is to stimulate future bilateral collaboration and investment between the UK and India.
This will be achieved through 2 workshops and a bilateral event to convene interested parties around the opportunity areas and develop a prospective future programme of activity for UK-India collaboration.
The Workshops are for Indian private, public, and research organisations to highlight and articulate specific opportunities they see that will have an impact and benefit for the UK and India.
Through the support of the Department for International Trade (DIT) and the “UK Science and Innovation Network” (SIN) teams in India we invite attendees from policy, satellite technology, food supply chain, trade organisations, farming co-operations, specialist academics, start-ups and funders to attend the workshop.
The themes for the two Workshops are:
a. Enabling connectivity of actuator and sensor devices in large extensions of agricultural areas.
b. Enabling sustainable and profitable supply chains through systems, robotics, and sensors from food production through to post harvest and logistics (cold storage, storage, and consumption).
a. Water scarcity, flooding, and drought
b. Disease management (pests)
c. Production Suitability: Integration and connectivity between precision and digital agriculture for decision making, management, monitoring of agricultural production, and identification of crop suitability.
