The Agriculture Export Policy is framed with a focus on agriculture export-oriented production, export promotion, better farmer realization and synchronization within policies and programmes of Government of India. It is required to have a “Farmers’ Centric Approach” for improved income through value addition at source itself which will help to minimize losses across the value chain. India needs to have farmer-oriented strategy to achieve the twin objective of food security and a prominent agriculture exporter of the world. The policy will also give a big push to food processing/manufacturing to have much higher growth in food production which will increase India’s share of value-added processed products in its Agriculture export basket at the global level. The broad objectives and vision are highlighted below.

The Government introduced a comprehensive Agriculture Export Policy in December 2018, with the following objectives:

1. To diversify our export basket, destinations and boost high value- and value-added agricultural exports, including focus on perishables. 2. To double agricultural exports from present US$30+billon to US$ 60+ billion by 2022 and reach US$ 100 Billion in next few years thereafter, with a stable policy regime 3. To promote novel, indigenous, organic, ethnic, traditional and non-traditional Agri products exports. 4. To provide an institutional mechanism for pursuing market access, tackling barriers and dealing with sanitary and phytosanitary issues. 5. To strive to double India’s share in world agri exports by integrating with global value chains. 6. Enable farmers to get benefit of export opportunities in overseas market.
