Agriculture minister Sharad Pawar on Saturday said that according to studies, growth in agriculture is twice effec-tive in eradicating poverty. Addressing the ASEAN-India ministerial meeting on agric-ulture in Kuala Lumpur, he said: “In my country, studies have shown that 1% growth in the agriculture sector is two times more effective in pove-rty eradication than growth in other sectors.” Pawar invited ASEAN countries to India as they could benefit from the experience in agriculture and collaborate in research.
