India has enormous agricultural potential, with its agriculture market expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 10.5% during 2022–2027.
For 2022, the government has set a record target for farmers to raise food grains production by 2%, aiming to produce about 307 million metric tons (MMT) of grains.
Despite its promising outlook, the Indian agricultural market currently faces several significant challenges. There is a huge variation in the quality of agricultural commodities due to the prevalence of numerous small scale farms, the fact that multiple different varieties of crops are planted and the inconsistent use of fertilizers throughout regions (and the nation as a whole). Moreover, poor packaging and low mechanization in the logistics supply chain and port operations create unwanted hurdles.
