Undoubtedly, Indian Agricultural sector is thriving for major structural transformations. Though it continues to accommodate the major share of the workforce, the sector is prone to output fluctuations even after establishing better input facilities and technology like irrigation, High yielding seeds, changes in cropping pattern etc. Though several recent efforts of Indian Government and corporates to develop various ‘source-to-market’ initiatives have been planned or running, but mostly it is in very nascent stage. With lots of similarities in multiple aspects, Israel excellence in Agri-technology and animal husbandry is already proving and will continue to prove as a suitable match for India to improve on/ off farm productivity and global competitiveness.
