New Delhi, India: The government has resolved to develop agricultural hi-tech in this year's Union Budget in order to make farmers self-sufficient. For India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi, it is a high-priority sector.
The government has established plans to develop it in a new way, moving away from traditional agriculture. All of this assures that the Budget meets the requirements of every Indian, from rural homes to chemical-free agriculture, a five-kilometer-wide corridor along the Ganges, and water for irrigation in Bundelkhand through the Ken-Betwa link project.
To supply digital and high-tech services to farmers, a new public-private partnership (PPP) scheme will be launched. Crop evaluation, land record digitization, and pesticide and nutrient spraying will all be done by "Kisan Drones."
In the Budget, it was declared that a comprehensive strategy to encourage local oilseed production will be implemented.
"A logical and thorough plan would be implemented with the goal of increasing domestic oilseed output and reducing our reliance on imported oilseeds," said Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. It is a balanced Budget for the agriculture sector, with infrastructure promotion, incentives, and technical incentives focusing on improving agriculture and farmers.
Farmers and villages will be able to increase their income while also becoming self-sufficient. The year 2023 has been chosen by the government as the Year of Millets. Its goal is to create knowledge about coarse cereal nutrition and farming in the face of changing climatic conditions.
