Krishi Unnayan Mela 2016

West Bengal today stands poised as a major growth area given the tremendous availability of natural resources coupled with skilled manpower and fiscal benefits. In taking India to newer heights of Agriculture & food processing capabilities, West Bengal can play a major role by leveraging its natural and human resource advantages. Economy of West Bengal is primarily dependent on agriculture. Agriculture accounts for the largest share of the labour force. A plurality of the state’s population is peasant farmers. Rice and potato are considered to be the principal food crops of West Bengal. West Bengal is the largest producer of rice in India and the second-largest producer of potatoes in India.

Pre-harvest mechanization and post harvest processing are key for developing an ecosystem, which will not only help in the socio-economic development of the West Bengal but will also go a long way in creating livelihoods by creating and strengthening the value chains right at the grass root level.

It is against this backdrop CII is organizing the 3rd edition of Krishi Unnayan Mela 2016, an unique platform for Pre and Post Harvest Technologies, from 21 – 23 October 2016 at Burdwan, West Bengal.
