NEW YORK, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Indian Agricultural Infrastructure Market 2012


The agricultural sector is one of the fundamental building blocks of the Indian economy. It not only feeds the country's population, but is also the source of livelihood for more than half of it. One of the key issues in recent times is food security, which has forced the country to adopt new and improved measures of feeding its expanding population with proper quantity and quality of food.

India is blessed with favorable climatic conditions for the production of a wide variety of crops. The country boasts of having the largest share of cultivated land, amounting to nearly 52 percent of its total area. In 2011, India held the record for producing 244,000 kilo tonnes of food grains.

However, the country's agricultural sector alone cannot sustain its food requirement. Going hand in hand with it is the infrastructure segment, which plays a pivotal role in transporting and distributing the pre- and post-harvest requirements of the sector. Although India has the basic ingredients of success in the agricultural sector, wide gaps in its infrastructure segment continue to stump this booming sector.

In recent times the Indian government has been focusing on supporting the agricultural infrastructure segment through funds, policies and incentives. There has been a constant effort to improve storage facilities in order to reduce wastage, and to improve roads so as to speed up the distribution of the produce to the targeted destinations.

Our report is a thorough study and analysis of the Indian agricultural infrastructure system, along with its current status and future scope. It defines the possible opportunities and scope of development in this segment. We analyze in detail the current government initiatives towards this sector and the impact they are having on the industry.
