Big India Farms (BIF) aims to play a key role in food supply and food security for India. Agriculture in India is a highly fragmented, without economies of scale and is often a laggard in using the latest technologies related to inputs like seeds,nutrition, harvesting. However, latest technology is needed for best gains in farming.
Because of minimal/non-existent water harvesting, there is heavy dependency on monsoons every year, which creates large fluctuations in the crop supplies year-to-year. In addition, about 25% of India’s food production is wasted during logistics and storage. Therefore, there is a serious need to increase food production through better organized farming practices, and reduce wastage through better supply chain practices. We also have experience with cold storages, and will move further on that front in the coming years, after we execute our planned roadmap for increasing the farm land under management.
