The COVID-19 pandemic has led to challenges across economy. The agricultural sector, known to provide source of livelihood to 58% of the country’s population, too bore the brunt in the first 45 days of the lockdown. However, bold measures announced for the sector in the third tranche of Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan affirmed the government’s focus on strengthening the sector.
Grant Thornton in India in collaboration with FICCI presents a report on Decoding agriculture in India amid COVID-19 crisis. The report is a guidebook for agriculture based businesses and government to identify the impact of COVID-19 crisis across the value chain. It provides meaningful insights and recommendations to various stakeholders for planning the future roadmap of the sector in India.
