Agriculture & Food Processing Board

IITDO has its own Agriculture & Food Processing Board to identify and provides representation at the national & the international level on issues which have an agricultural & food (agro-food) perspective. It seeks to influence key decision-makers to ensure that legislation is created and implemented in a manner that is beneficial to the agricultural, farmers welfare, food processors etc.

It promotes and helps to educate our community about agriculture. Every year the Board organizes several interactive programs, a showcase of the impact agriculture has on the economy. The board also hosts speakers to help & educate our community on different agriculture-related topics.

We partner with local public, private and civil organizations to share knowledge to improve agricultural practices, livelihoods, health, and nutrition. The Board also facilitates the agriculture sector to generate better momentum in the next few years due to an increase in investments in agricultural infrastructure such as irrigation facilities, agro machinery, warehousing, and cold storage, etc.

The Board has been strenuously working on agriculture policies. Over the years, considerable efforts have been put into devising policies & suggestions that would increase farm income, productivity and global competitiveness of Indian Agriculture. IITDO has played a pivotal role in defining the Agri-policy framework of the nation.
