Agriculture is a significant driver of Indian economic growth and poverty reduction. However, the sector is failing owing in part to restraints that limit the productivity of women, who play a multidimensional role at every stage in agriculture — from sowing to planting, drainage, irrigation, fertilizer, plant protection, harvesting, weeding, and storage. They are a critical resource in agriculture and the rural economy.

This Women’s Day we need to realize, the vision and goal for strengthening Indian Agriculture cannot be achieved without the empowerment of women associated with agriculture. Women contribute significantly to the agricultural and rural economies of all developing countries like India. They are responsible for about 60-80% of food and 90% of dairy production in the country.

Agriculture is more likely than other sectors to provide diverse opportunities for empowering women. however, a major challenge they face in agriculture is the usage of sophisticated and heavy agriculture equipment as compared to their male counterparts. Therefore, there is a need for innovation in Agriculture machinery, tools, and equipment; making them more convenient and easy to use for women farmers.

So, let’s celebrate this International day of women with the key focus to empower rural women for their contribution to the Agriculture sector.
