Agriculture is the primary source of livelihood for about 58% of India’s population. Indian farmers are mostly small or marginal, wherein 85% of them own less than one hectare of land.
While agriculture’s share in India’s economy has progressively declined to less than 18%. The agriculture sector’s importance in the Indian economy and social fabric cannot be downplayed as nearly three-quarters of Indian families depend on rural incomes.
India’s food security depends on producing cereal crops, increasing its production of fruits, vegetables, and milk to meet the demands of a growing population with rising incomes. To do so, a fruitful, contentious, diversified, and sustainable agricultural sector will need to emerge at an accelerated pace.
Understanding these challenges faced by the populace, team Power Rangers decided to find the answer to, “How to help farmers with a small piece of land to increase their profitability with high production?”.
The main objective of the SFD Kiosk Center is to help the farming communities. Such that a skillful farmer and skill-less farmer will be connected to the SFD Kiosk Center that will be administered by the IT Centers and the developers’ team with modern technology.
