With a vision to achieve food security, employment generation and income enhancement, the government department is now focusing on sustainable agriculture, along with specific focus on alternate crops like millets and developing the horticulture segment for crops like coconut, citrus fruits, banana, various spices, pineapple etc. With the changing food habits, emerging markets for agricultural commodities and enhanced disposable income of consumers, there is a need for a paradigm shift from subsistence livelihood activities to modern business enterprises. Therefore, both primary and secondary activities (production and post-production aspects) in this sector needs a befitting strategy to ensure sustainable and consistent growth. Addressing challenges like unavailability of machinery, high price fluctuations and post-harvest loss, limited market channels, connectivity and transportation issues etc. are actually bringing about newer and broader opportunities for well organized, market-oriented and technology-led development in cluster mode. Introducing science and technology-led production systems by imparting skill development, technical and vocational trainings to upscale knowledge, skill and attitude of youths will be a critical aspect going forward. An event like The Agri-Horticultural Show can definitely be a key enabler in realizing the vision for a better Agri-Horticultural ecosystem.

The participation of various stakeholders in this event will certainly give a boost to the investments into the State and also pave a way for the farmers/ FPCs of Assam for better realizations from their Agricultural and Horticultural produce. Another objective of this event is to enhance the quantum of supply and export of Agri-Horticultural produce from Assam to other states and countries. Along with this, the State’s farming fraternity as well as extension functionality will be enriched with expert knowledge resources from across the world. Many eminent & renowned speakers are likely to augment the show with their valuable expertise.

Apart from expo, the Show will have technical sessions in varied emerging areas of Agricultural-Horticultural sector. In addition to inaugural session, there will be eight technical sessions, running in parallel (two sessions at a time).

On the side lines of the show, an exhibition will be arranged.

The stalls put by nursery owners will be another crowd puller. Machineries like combined harvesters, multi crop dryer, solar bubble dryer, millet processing machines etc. will also be on the display.
