He explained the great opportunities available to increase India’s GDP from the agriculture sector.

The Dhanuka Group has always believed in working in PPP mode with the government and agricultural universities for the benefit of our annadatas, the farmers. The Dhanuka Group looks forward to uniting to improve the yield, quality and income of farmers through quality agricultural inputs, especially crop protection chemicals and through private agricultural extension.

RG Agarwal also announced that they will be providing free samples of one of Dhanuka’s new technology products which have recently been introduced like Kirari for control of mildew, Nissodium for control of powdery mildew, Conika for preventing the formation of bacterio-fungal complexes in pomegranate, grapes among other multiple crops. He also said that apart from these products, other samples from Dhanuka’s range of over 100 products can be sought by any scientist or student for research purposes.

Dhanuka also offers scholarships to poor students from agricultural universities and offers summer internships to a large number of students across the country. Dhanuka is eager to sign memorandums of understanding with other universities, as our country has over 14 million farmers who live in over 6.5 lake villages and bringing new technologies to them is a herculean task.

India’s agriculture GDP is 1/3 of China’s agriculture GDP, although India has much more arable land and rainfall. The main reasons are the non-availability of new technologies and quality agricultural inputs as well as the low use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides in India compared to China and other developed countries, in addition to the presence and the widespread use of fake bioproducts containing chemical pesticides. in India.

At Chinese income levels, Indian GDP from agriculture can be significantly increased. One can imagine how much the rural economy, farmers’ incomes and therefore the entire Indian economy will recover. This is only possible by providing new technology which is only possible in PPP mode and the government should come forward to support the private sector as the government has realized that doing business is not the job of the government and that is why they are selling their stakes in large public sector companies.
