This project will conduct research in agricultural policies and adjacent disciplines to provide insights on measures that can make agriculture in India sustainable, productive and profitable for farmers. The objective is to provide policy suggestions to industry, stakeholders in agriculture and the government. Innovations in policies and technologies to promote sustainable agriculture such as precision farming will be studied in detail and the focus will be on three case studies – Punjab (rice cultivation), Maharashtra (sugarcane cultivation) and Tamil Nadu (cultivation of bananas).
