The North East region is endowed with pristine natural bio-diversity. Since decades, agriculture and allied activities have been the mainstay of the economy. In the current times, there is a great urgency for developing and nurturing an entrepreneurial eco-system in order to promote enterprises and start-ups in this sector and create more jobs in the years ahead. This will be the key to development and diversification of agriculture in the NE region where focus is being laid to develop B-2-B enterprises.
Assam Agricultural University (AAU) has been developing numerous technologies in the pre-harvest and post-harvest domain to increase farm productivity and reduce cost of production, besides post-harvest processing, value addition and enhancing marketability of a wide range of products of the region.
AAU has established the best-in-class Innovation hub to facilitate absorption and commercialization of various agri and allied-agri technologies to promote ventures and businesses in the North East region.
