KISAN – India’s Largest Agri Show
KISAN is the largest specialized exhibition for agriculture in India attracting the world’s most prominent producers of machinery, equipment, technologies and solutions for the industry. For trade visitors from all over India as well as the neighboring countries, it is an important meeting point for the entire sector. During the last edition of KISAN, as many as 584 companies presented the entire range of products for modern agriculture and animal husbandry. The 28th edition of KISAN will take place December 12-16, 2018 in Pune.
With a population of almost 1.31 billion people and a GDP of about 2.3 billion USD (2016) India is one of Asia’s most attractive marketplaces. Agriculture employs more than half of the country’s population, most of which are small-scale and subsistence farmers. India is the second largest producer of rice in the world with an expected export volume of over 4 mio. tons in 2017-2018. Apart from rice, the main cash crops are wheat, cotton, cane, turmeric, oilseeds, fruits and vegetables.
The exhibition venue is located in Pune, the industrial center, which is after Mumbai the second largest city of Maharashtra, one of the richest and most developed Indian states. Since agriculture in Maharashtra is heavily dependent on the monsoon rains and prone not only to floods but also droughts, the application of irrigation technologies is actively propagated in order to reduce the rain dependency. Although the government owns a large number of water dams across the country, they are used far below their potential so far.
