The Gujarat government will be holding the Vibrant Gujarat Global High Tech Agro Summit in state capital Gandhinagar from September 9.

"The two-day summit aims to bring together large number of progressive farmers from across the country and provide them a platform to interact with leaders, policy makers, academia, scientists, investors and technologists," Chief Minister Narendra Modi today told PTI.

"Also, it will educate farmers on how to use latest agri-techno methods to increase produce and generate more revenue, despite water scarcity and paucity of land," he said.

It will make poor farmers partners in agriculture development, the CM added.

Gujarat's average agriculture growth hovers around 12 per cent after it began holding " Krushi Melas" (agriculture fairs) since 2003 after Modi took over the reins in October 2001.
