New job opportunities are coming up for the youth

Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh said that newer developments in the agriculture sector have led to greater employment opportunities for skilled youth in various segments. These fields are agri-warehousing, cold chains, supply chains, dairy, poultry, meat, fisheries, horticulture, agricultural mechanisation and micro-irrigation, he said, giving the details.
“The youth is benefiting from these opportunities. Self-employment opportunities have also increased in these fields, which require skilled youth,” a release quoted Singh as saying at the ‘National Workshop on Skill Development in Agriculture’.
He said that particular emphasis is being given to enhancement of productivity, post-harvest management, better return of farmers’ produce and decrease in agriculture-related risks.
