The event would bring together more than 13,500 farmers from across the country and around 1,500 Agri startups, an official statement said. More than 1 crore farmers from various institutions are expected to attend the event virtually. The Sammelan will also witness the participation of researchers, policymakers, and other stakeholders.
Prime Minister will inaugurate 600 Pradan Mantri Kisan Samruddhi Kendras (PMKSK) under the ministry of chemicals & fertilizers. The statement said under the scheme, the fertilizer retail shops in the country will be converted into PMKSK in a phased manner. It said PMKSK will cater to a wide variety of needs of the farmers and provide agri-inputs (fertilizers, seeds, implements); testing facilities for soil, seeds, and fertilizers; generate awareness among farmers; provide information regarding various government schemes and ensure regular capacity building of retailers at block/ district level outlets. More than 3.3 lakh retail fertilizer shops are planned to be converted into PMKSK.

During the event, the Prime Minister will launch Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Jan Urvarak Pariyojana — One Nation One Fertilizer. Under the scheme, Prime Minister will launch Bharat urea bags, which will help companies market fertilizers under the single brand name ‘Bharat’.

In a reflection of the continued commitment of the Prime Minister towards the welfare of the farmers, during the event, Prime Minister would release the 12th installment amount of Rs16,000 crore under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN) through direct benefit transfer, the statement said. Under the scheme, eligible farmer families are provided a benefit of Rs6,000 per year in three equal installments of Rs2,000 each. So far, eligible farmer families have received benefits of more than Rs2 lakh crore under PM-KISAN.

The official statement said the Prime Minister will also inaugurate the Agri Startup Conclave and Exhibition. About 300 startups will showcase their innovation related to precision farming, post-harvest & value-add solutions, allied agriculture, waste to wealth, mechanization for small farmers, supply chain management, and argi-logistic, among others.

The platform would facilitate startups to interact with farmers, farmer-producer organizations (FPOs), agri-experts, corporates, etc. Startups will also share their experience and interact with other stakeholders in technical sessions.

The statement also noted during the event, Prime Minister will also launch ‘Indian Edge’, an e-magazine on fertilizer. It will provide information on domestic and international fertilizer scenarios, including recent developments, price trend analysis, availability and consumption, and success stories of farmers, among others.
