On the joyous occasion of completing 25 years in the industry, Krishi Jagran is starting a series of webinars from 5th September, Sunday, 11 am onwards. The first in the series will be about “The Growth of Indian Agriculture in the Last 25 Years & Future Prospects”. 

Through these years, Krishi Jagran has been, voicing the struggles, problems & achievements of farmers, and has witnessed how the agriculture sector in India has changed over the years. From using bullocks to plough the field to using High-end tractors & the latest technology equipments, Indian Farmers have come a long way and so has Indian agriculture! 

India’s Food Grain Production has increased tremendously over the last 2 decades; it reached 303.34 million tonnes in the year 2020-21.  The reason: increase in productivity due to adoption of new technologies, more intensive use of manufactured inputs, such as fertilizers, and the efficiencies gained as farm production shifted to larger more specialized operations. Not forgetting the tireless hard work of farmers, Research by Agricultural Scientists and farmer friendly policies of the Government.

Indian Agriculture has changed a lot over the years but one thing that has remained the same is that it has continued to be the primary occupation of most of the people of the country. More than 50% of the people depend on this sector for their livelihood and will continue to do so. 

To discuss all the developments that have taken place in the last 25 years and what are future prospects in the industry, we have organized a webinar on 5th September, Sunday. 

The event will be moderated by MC Dominic, Founder & Editor in Chief of Krishi Jagran & Agriculture World.
