 Chairman's Message

The 2nd Agri-Leadership Summit with a slogan of “Agriculture to Agri-business - Taking Rural Farmer Forward” was successfully organized from 18-20 March, 2017 at Surajkund, Faridabad, Haryana. The Agri-Leadership Summit-2017 had two distinct themes: promoting Haryana as a destination for Peri-Urban Agriculture/Horticulture/Allied activities and focus on Agribusiness and Marketing Leadership. Besides, there was focus on issues such as doubling of farmers' income, climate smart agriculture, micro irrigation/soil health, organic farming, risk management, A2 Milk production/dairying, aquaculture, agro forestry, agro product marketing, and agro industries etc. This summit fulfilled its objective of harnessing the vast and untapped growth potential of agriculture in Haryana for accelerated, inclusive and sustainable growth. This Agri-Leadership Summit provided the avenues for recognition, facilitation and incubation of the farmers. More than one lakh farmers, scientists, experts and planners participated in this mega event to know about the latest agricultural technologies showcased at this platform. Some of our agri-leaders proved their self in farm innovations and diversification of agriculture. They were recognized as “KHETI RATAN” and awarded with a cash prize of `1,00,000 at this summit. Being Agri-leaders in their respective field should be source of inspiration for other farmers. This kind of recognition will motivate the other farmers of the State to discover their hidden potential in farm innovations. I am highly impressed to see that the farmers have come out with new ideas and innovations to tackle emerging challenges in the area of natural resource management, horticulture, organic farming, linking with market, processing and storage, dairying, bee-keeping. It was also heartening to see that the farmers have started “branding” their products. It shows the increasing awareness among the farmers about quality, market demand and intellectual property issues. Further, it was also clear from the displays that agriculture need to be made “technology driven” and scientists will have to develop crop varieties having water and nutrient use efficiency which respond to organic farming. Research and Development in dairy sector should give priority to indigenous breeds of cows. This need to be particularly focused on panchagavya products to increase income of farmers as well. The Agri-Leadership Summit-2017 was very helpful in making agriculture more attractive and rewarding to the rural youth. Accordingly, the government has placed its emphasis on “Empowerment of Youth in Agriculture” that will help not only in boosting agricultural growth but generate more income also from both farm and off-farm enterprises. The efforts of Haryana Government are certainly in the direction of creating environment and establishing infrastructure keeping in mind the saying “Uttam Kheti Madhyam Baan..” both important professional activities to be in the hands of youths for prosperity of the State and that of the Nation as well.
