Agriculture, the backbone of both the economies of India and Senegal, is a sector where the realization of potential is very important. While responding to the very basic need of humans-food, agriculture is also an economic activity offering employment opportunities, means of livelihood and boosting trade among nations. Further, it is also a science that calls for innovation and modernization. The major strides made by India in agriculture such as the green and white revolutions and also the food processing industry, are worth emulating. Both India and Senegal are countries that are heavily agro reliant and the role of agriculture in strengthening ties between the two countries cannot be overlooked. Thus, the Government of Senegal attaches great importance to the modernization of agriculture which is at the core of the “Emerging Senegal Plan” (PSE).
