The Commercial attaches in India, in cooperation with the Israel Export Institute, conduct a road show of agro-technology companies to India.

Most of India Agriculture concentrated in small farms. Distributed farms and farmers' ability to buy technology to improve the production is low. One of the solutions the market is starting to progress, are associations of these farms into greater commercial corporations, enabling farmers to work more efficiently. Many Indian companies have realized the potential of these farms and wish to incorporate them. In addition, many farmers have been grouped into cooperatives. The government supports by providing subsidies to these groups.

Centers of excellence located throughout India proved to farmers and Indian companies the effectiveness of Israeli technologies. These are reflected in the increase in GDP in crops, a decrease in water usage and a significant decrease in the use of pesticides and fertilizers. All these create high demand from farmers and Indian companies to use Israeli technology and know-how for these projects.
