Germany has told India it can play key role in doubling farmers' income as the European nation has the expertise in farm mechanisation and post-harvest management, the government said on Friday.
German food and agriculture minister Julia Klockner met her Indian counterpart Narendra Singh Tomar and discussed various issues on the agriculture sector.
The two ministers also signed a 'joint declaration of intent' on cooperation in agriculture market development, the agriculture ministry said in a statement.
In the meeting, "Klockner said Germany has expertise in mechanisation and post-harvest management. She thinks this shall play a major role in achieving doubling farmers' income," the statement added.
Tomar, in the meeting, said the goal of doubling farmers' income by 2022 is being achieved by improving productivity, lowering input cost, creating competitive markets and strengthening the value chain for agriculture and allied sectors. -- PTI
