Till a decade ago, Gujarat and agriculture were considered much like chalk and cheese. The state was drought hit 7 out of every 10 years and with no perennial rivers apart from the Narmada, the farmers only turned to the rain Gods for water.

A decade later, the picture has altered completely. Today the farmer is prospering and at a time when the nation’s agriculture is growing at 3%, Gujarat’s agriculture is soaring at 11%!

This quantum leap wouldn’t have been possible without a determined effort by the Government to bring about a paradigm shift in agriculture systems of Gujarat. It was a vision, backed by spotless implementation. Today, as the month long Krishi Mahotsav surges on, Gujarat’s farmers are getting opportunities that could not even dream of a decade ago! Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi addresses the farmers every evening each time on a different theme that celebrates the farmer, celebrates agriculture and celebrates Gujarat!
