                                                          Chairman's Message

The Haryana State has made greater strides in food production during last decades owing largely on chemical based farming. However, this success resulted in several subsequent problems. The rice-wheat cropping system in the State, covering approximately 58% of cultivable area, is now seen and realized as major cause of soil health deterioration. Henceforth alternate options for sustainable farming have to be revisited for agricultural research and development in the State. Presently, we need to create a balance for sustainable agriculture and allied sectors by introducing climate smart technologies conserving natural resources, reducing costs of cultivation and risk management to make farming more resilient and profitable. There are still several untapped opportunities in agriculture which may also create employment. Peri-urban farming including horticulture, vegetables, mushroom cultivation, organic farming, dairying, beekeeping, fisheries, poultry, post-harvest management, processing, value addition and agro industry have enormous scope to increase the farm income. Peri-urban farming with organic practices of vegetables like potato, onion, tomato, pea, cucurbits, etc. are likely to pay rich dividends to the farmers with higher benefit-cost ratio than rice-wheat sequence. Promotion and adoption of peri-urban farming and research for development of varieties suitable for organic farming is the need of the future era. Further, there is a scope for capacity building of farmers and rural youth through entrepreneurship development and self-employment oriented agricultural education. Opportunities are emerging for agri-business and entrepreneurship in domestic and global market leading to employment generation through technology based agriculture and post-harvest management. The geographical location of Haryana gives it an unique advantage to reach national and international market. Hence , there is ample opportunity to retain youth in agriculture and related sectors. However, for higher income generation appropriate and attractive policy for processed and value added agri - products is required. This would ensure better return to farmers by minimization of post-harvest losses beside employment generation in food processing industries and marketing of products through more investment in creation of infra-structural facilities. There is a need for creation of specialty agricultural hubs having production, processing, storage and marketing facilities even for exports as per climate zones in the State. In addition to this, branding of agriculture based products should be initiated and youth in particular be encouraged. The competition for the development of branded products can be created. The research institutions should have a mission to create unique products as per the international standards which the youths can promptly take up for earning their livelihood as an udyami in agriculture and in turn contribute in the prosperity of the State.
