The ‘Smart Farm’ will be “a live walk-through model” highlighting the best of modern technologies in the entire agriculture value chain, starting from pre-harvest, post-harvest to modern scientific storage, banking and agri marketing opportunities, she said.
The farm will also disseminate information about various Rajasthan Government policies and new initiatives in each section of value chain.
The other major objective of the ‘Smart Farm’ will be to display the importance of resource conservation in future farming, through demonstrations, including water use efficiency technologies, importance of soil testing, organic farming and farm mechanisation.
The ‘GRAM’, touted as an international farmers’ event, will be held from November 9 to 11. The event will be jointly organised by the Government of Rajasthan and Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry and is expected to witness the participation of around 50,000 farmers, according to the state government.
Rajasthan leads in production of carom-seeds, coriander, fenugreek, mustard, henna, isabgol, guar, bajra and coarse wool. The state ranks No. 2 in the production of gram, cumin seeds and all coarse cereals.
