This programme involves the establishment of agro-processing plants and agro-allied factories for value-addition to agricultural commodities produced by farmers. The development of agro-industries will bring a lot of benefits to the agricultural sector and the entire economy of the state.

Agro-Industries provide assured market for agricultural produce, promote the development of out-growers, enhance value addition and minimise post harvest losses. Overall, the development of agro-industries is an important element of government’s strategy for the creation of direct and indirect jobs and unleashing the agricultural potentials of the State for wealth creation.
