What’s driving growth in farm input sector; find out at VCCircle Agri & Food Investment Summit 2014; register now

The 6th edition of VCCircle Agri & Food Investment Summit scheduled to be held at ITC Grand Central, Mumbai on October 16, will dive deep into changing trends, opportunities, future outlook and private investments committed  towards modernising Indian food & agri businesses and their key sub segments. 

With the farm input sector witnessing a larger technology play resulting in better resource planning, increased productivity and output, we understand what’s driving the farm input sector. Be it seeds, fertilisers, modern irrigation methods, farm equipment or animal feed, each sub segment is driven by technology advancement, providing huge opportunities for entrepreneurs to scale up businesses at the farm input level.

The queries to which we are trying to find answers at the summit include: What policy initiatives taken by regulatory bodies are helping the sector? How do measures taken to improve soil health condition stimulate scientific usage of seeds & pesticides, promote modern irrigation practices and disseminate high yield-disease resistant seeds, driving productivity? What segments are driving private participation and investments in the farm inputs & animal feed space? What are the challenges in catalysing modern technology in terms of inputs? What can be done to strengthen the R&D infrastructure?

Besides, the summit will touch upon following topics:

  • Scaling up warehousing, cold storages & agri-business supply chain logistics
  • Evolving niche opportunities in organic foods, cattle farms, breweries & food ingredients market.
  • Innovations in primary & secondary processing: Food commodities, dairy & poultry, ready-to-eat packaged food
  • Opportunities in farm fresh retail: Fruits, vegetables & high value commodities
