Description

Working closely with the Government of Odisha, ICRISAT has helped develop a mitigation strategy for agriculture for COVID-19-related challenges. It involves safeguarding harvest-ready crops, arranging for distribution of perishables and preparing for the next crop season.Odisha’s response plan is to meet the virus head-on despite being spared of its wrath; it had reported just 160 positive cases and one death at the time of writing this. That, however, has not left it complacent. For, Odisha, an agrarian state that witnessed impressive growth in crop productivity and farm income in recent years while being disproportionately affected by extreme weather, disparity in farm incomes and high dependence on labor intensive crop production, has much at stake. Agriculture engages nearly two-thirds of the state’s workforce and is worth ` 75,800 crore annually.
