The Indian agricultural sector has been a key contributor to India’s growth story for manifold reasons – direct consumption in domestic markets, raw material in many agro-based industries, and its export potential. Growing complexities in the supply chain, increased usage of pesticides, disposal of untreated industrial waste and lack of adoption of Good Agricultural Practices, have often posed a greater risk for contamination of agricultural products at the beginning of the supply chain.
Stringent safety regulations and quality compliance norms for agricultural commodities, coupled with rising consumer awareness and affinity towards brands with sustainable practices have necessitated the importance of agricultural testing. This is further fuelled by huge export opportunity; that requires producers to be updated on global demand trends, safety standards to be maintained and quality compliance norms to be adhered in cultivation, post-harvest processing and its further movement across the supply chain. In order to ensure compliance with parameters set by various regulatory authorities, agricultural testing is increasingly being adopted as an essential pre-emptive measure.
