Madhya Pradesh is the second largest state in the Country with an estimated population of about 60 million. Agriculture is a predominant sector in the state with 75% of rural population largely dependent on it. This results in wide availability of manpower at a reasonable cost.
The agriculture sector forms almost one-third of the GSDP and forms the backbone of the Madhya Pradesh's economy as it contributes around 46% to the state's economy.
Given the vast potential of growth in this sector, CII will organize the 2nd edition of "Krishi Vikas 2012". The exhibition will help the farmers to understand the latest techniques and gain more knowledge in the field of agricultural development and help them in improving the quality of the agricultural produce. This will help in achieving the following objectives:
- Increasing the Agriculture productivity and production to double the farm income in 5 years.
- Create more employment opportunities and to convert present Marginal employment into full employment by raising productivity.
- To help small & marginal farmers in particular.
