Technological Interventions in Indian Food Systems and the Future of Food Security

With India on track to become the world’s most populous country by 2030, agricultural technology will play a vital role in ensuring that the country meets its future food security needs. Technological Interventions in Indian Food Systems and the Future of Food Security assesses the challenges facing Indian food systems in the 21st century, from seed production to retail, and introduces the technological interventions that can potentially address them.

The report has four core sections. Section one centers on the challenges of India’s approach to improving genetic gains through crop breeding. Section two focuses on farm management practices, information communication technologies, and sustainable intensification. Section three examines food loss and waste and explores how technology can reduce loss by improving storage and transportation facilities. Section four investigates how new platforms and technology can improve smallholder market participation.
