1) Agrotech: Innovative ag-tech solutions for agricultural challenges in India

Food and agriculture is a large part of the GDP of India. The sustainable development of the Indian F&A sector is very important in order to be able to feed 9 billion people by 2050. Currently, two of the key challenges in the Indian F&A sector are a scattered agricultural landscape dominated by small/ marginal farmers and increasing drought caused by climate change. Increased availability of technologies like internet, smartphones and satellites paves the way to tackle these challenges with innovative technical solutions.
