Meet on enhancing sorghum exports

March 11, 2015 12:00 am | Updated 05:40 am IST - SANGAREDDY:

Developing strategies to enhance exports of sorghum, sorghum products and seed through public-private partnership (PPP) will be the focus of a two-day consultative meet on March 17 and 8 being organised by the Agri-Business Incubation Programme under the Agribusiness and Innovation Platform of the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi- Arid Tropics (ICRISAT).


The meeting will map challenges and opportunities of all stakeholders in addressing the need to enhance export marketability of sorghum (food, feed and industrial products) and seed from India with the help of agri-platforms led by agricultural institutions and agencies promoting exports.

The meeting will be attended by an expert panel and over 100 participants from public and private organisations, consisting of exporters, experts from research and development (R&D) organisations, government officials and representatives from the sorghum processing and seed industries.
