  1. Sustaining India’s Food and Nutritional Security: Challenges and Opportunities T. Mohapatra

  2. Indian Agriculture Supports • 17.6% of world human population • 15% of world animal population with • 4.2% of world's water • 2.4% of world land area

  3. Indian Agriculture: A Saga of Success From “Ship to Mouth” situation in 1950s to Food Security Act 2013 (From shortage to surplus)

  4. Science-led Agricultural Revolution in India

  5. Indian Agriculture: Production Status

  6. Agro-export: Basmati Example Triennial Total Basmati Export and Earning % increase in value=14.50 % increase in volume=10.02 Pusa Basmati 1121 to total Basmati during 2012-16 Area : 71.4% Production : 72.8 % Forex earning : ~Rs. 19,000 crores (annually)

  7. Progressive improvement in grain and cooking quality in Basmati rice • Basmati 370 Pusa Basmati 1 Pusa Basmati 1121 Pusa Basmati 1509 • Pusa 1121 • Pusa Basmati 1 • Taraori Basmati • 1930 1989 2003 2013

  8. Rice Production and Yield

  9. Spread of landmark variety of Wheat : HD 2967 71.1 q/ha • Released for NWPZ and subsequently for NEPZ • A replacement of established and popular wheat variety PBW 343 • Acreage during 2012-13 was about 1.5 million ha, which increased to 5.0 million ha in 2013-14 • Highest ever and unprecedented indent of breeder seed received in 2016-17 for 3080 q, which can cover around 10 million ha area. This is a record for any variety • Licensed to about 200 private seed companies for fast spread • A record of licensing of a single food grain variety under MoU • Has got a very high breeder seed indent

  10. Demand is driven by population growth and land availability More from Less for More… World Population 2030 >8 billion People fed per hectare(2.47 acres = 1 hectare) 20056.5 billion 2030>5 people 2005>4 people 19602 people 19502.5 billion
