Industry

  • A large population and rising urban and rural income is driving the demand. External demand is driving exports from the agriculture sector.
  • Demand for agricultural inputs such as hybrid seeds and fertilizers and allied services like warehousing and cold storages is increasing in India at a fast pace.
  • The govt. announced a PLI scheme for the food processing sector with an incentive outlay of Rs 10,900 crore (US$ 1,484 million) over a period of six years starting from FY22.
  • The Krishi UDAN 2.0 scheme proposes assistance and incentive for movement of agri-produce by air transport.
  • High proportion of agricultural land, diverse agro-climatic conditions encourage cultivation of different crops
  • The Indian agricultural sector is predicted to increase to US$ 24 billion by 2025 generating 2.0Lakhs jobs every year.
  • In production, India ranks 2nd in paddy & wheat and 1st in pulses in the world including neighbouring countries. India is the world's largest sugar-producing country and holds the second position in rice production only after China
  • The food processing industry in India is expected to generate 9 million jobs by 2025.
  • Integration of Technology and Management with ICAR Standards.
  • Candidates will receive an NSDC-approved certification in Drone Technology which will cover aspects of video graphing and area mapping.
  • The program includes practical training in various aspects of Agriculture, such as crop production, Animal Husbandry, Farm Management, Drone Management, and Agricultural Marketing.
  • Candidate will cover aspects of Digital Agriculture, Smart Farming, Big Data, Business analytics techniques in Agriculture
  • Candidates will learn to incorporate drone technology into a larger agricultural business plan and Data collection. Our laboratories are fully equipped with state-of-the-art instruments that boast advanced technology, such as HPLC, UV Visible Spectrophotometer, CO 2 Incubator, PCR, Nanodrop, and software utilizing molecular modeling.

Drones with advanced cameras and sensor technology can be employed for crop health and growth monitoring, enabling farmers to detect problems such as nutrient deficiencies, pest infestations, or irrigation issues in their crops at an early stage.

Employing drones for creating high-resolution maps of agricultural fields can provide farmers with valuable insights into variations in soil moisture, fertility, and crop yield. This data can be utilized by farmers to optimize the application of fertilizer and water, reducing wastage and maximizing yields.

Drones can be equipped with seed dispensers or spray nozzles to plant seeds or apply pesticides and fertilizers. This can reduce labor costs and increase efficiency, especially for large-scale operations.

Drones can be used to monitor livestock, such as counting animals, monitoring their health, or identifying areas where they may be stressed or overcrowded.

Drones can be used to survey agricultural land, identifying features such as boundaries, waterways, and topography. This can help farmers plan their operations and optimize their use of land.
