"It is also the leading producer of spices and plantation crops as well as livestock, fisheries and poultry. India is thus emerging as a major player in the international market," Pawar said.

Pawar acknowledged the work of the farming community, scientists, technologists and the state governments for India's rising presence in the global agricultural market.
