Agriculture & Food Insights, Innovations @ CLIMAFIX Summit 2022

Agriculture & Food

Introduction

After power generation, transport and industrial processes, agriculture is the fourth largest greenhouse gas emissions sector in India.

Unlike the industrial sector, where most emissions come from the use of energy, emissions in the agriculture sector result from both energy use and non-energy source. Some of the prominent emission sources in this sector includes the use high carbon footprint fertilizers, use of energy for irrigation, and methane and NO2 emissions released during the cultivation of rice and other crops.

India is the largest producer of cotton in the world, a crop whose cultivation has a large carbon footprint. India is also the second largest producer of rice in the world (after China), and rice is another crop with a massive carbon footprint. While awareness and farmer education can perhaps reduce some portion of this footprint, many other options, alternatives and innovations need to be attempted to significantly bring down India's agri sector CO2 emissions.

A number of startups have started providing innovative solutions all along the agri value chain that add sustainability while lowering the carbon footprint. The rise of regenerative agriculture and precision farming have added significant impetus to innovations and startup efforts in the sector.

The Low Carbon Agri & Food sector within the CLIMAFIX Summit 2022 will have over 25 startups sharing their insights and providing brief presentations of their value propositions, spread over two sessions - a Panel Discssion and a Snapshot session.

In addition, we expect about 100 relevant delegates to include early stage sustainable & low carbon agri & food startups or entrepreneurs with the potential to found startups in future.
