India's agricultural products is approximately US$120 billion!

about 1/3 of the USA, 1/8 of China's!
India's gnp is approximately US$1 trillion while China's is US$6.1 trillion in 2010!

cheerios!

I don't think that it is possible to develop cheap innovative robots....

But what certainly IS possible would be making bigger farms and helping farmers to get credits for farming machines.

I don't think the problem in China is that farmers don't have machines - I think the problem is that farms are too small, so it just won't pay off to invest into buying a machine.

However, farmers are China's backbone - all these 800 million people living in countryside need a job too - so better give them a small, unproductive farm which produces enough food for them to survive than having slums like in other developing countries! Therefore I still do support this policy.

That's what they said about the "horseless carriage"!

The "detractors" shouted, It's only for the rich - the top 1%.
BUT Mr. Henry Ford, created a "car" that cost only as little as 6 month's wage of the ordinary workers!

Today's car is even cheaper, with much "digitization", automation, reducing costly mechanical parts dramatically.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Looking ahead in China.

We know PLAAF has created "automatic" targeting avionics.
By taking the same software - video system = we can mass produce "robot picking, plucking units"

The PLAN, CNSA by now has "workable designs" of computerized arms, with finger digits capability!

China's is probably the world's biggest producer of ELECTRIC BUGGIES.

ADD that together - cheap mass produced ROBOTIC PICKERS, PLUCKING units!
Target cheaper than Rmb20,000 per unit!
We probably need up to an equivalent of 10 million seasonal workers for all. The market demand for such "cheap" robots would be in the "hundred of thousands" units annually!

it's possible!

cheerios!

Why do you people KEEPS ON CONFIRMING what I am saying!!!!!

Yes, India agriculture production is less than US$120 billion or not more than US$200 billion.
and Yes, India exports is mostly to "gourmet" European, USA, British
and to compatriot of similar cuisines.

cheerios!

There would be more farms in China if the government did not steal their land and turn it into wasted government buildings and KTV's.
