Agriculture is civilization's cornerstone and society's pillar. Agriculture is an important part of our daily lives since it provides us with food. As the world's population grows and climate change factors influence food availability the agriculture sector is under immense strain. Approximately 8.9% of the population, or 690 million people, go to bed without meals. By 2030, it is expected that the number would have surpassed 850 million. However, external or import dependency for food crops is growing, making agricultural output and exports much too minuscule for commercialization. The country's agricultural output is hampered by a lack of energy. Energy is a critical need for the Agriculture sector.
Powering Agriculture Program is envisioned to deliver renewable energy solutions to enhance agriculture production and post harvesting processes with solar powered agriculture technological equipment and systems.
