Padamsree KH Gharda to get Lifetime Achievement Award for Agriculture Leadership

The Life Time Achievement Award for 2018 will be conferred to Padamsree Dr KH Gharda for his outstanding contributions to the Indian chemical sector with special interests in agrochemicals which positively impacted the growth in India's farm sector and created newer opportunities in the Indian agrochemical sector.

The National Awards Committee of Agriculture Leadership Awards, which met in New Delhi on October 17, announced the Global Agriculture Leadership Awards for 2018, under various categories.

The Awards Committee is chaired by Prof M S Swaminathan, the architect of green revolution and has 24 members of global eminence as its members.

Global Leadership Summit and Awards are being organised by Indian Council of Food and Agriculture with support of Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare; Ministry of Food Processing Industries and Ministry of Commerce.

A world-renowned philanthropist, chemical engineer and entrepreneur, Dr Gharda developed cheaper and better indigenous ways to develop chemicals ending India’s reliance on imported dyes and chemicals.

Agriculture Leadership Awards were instituted in 2008 to recognise the leadership roles played by individuals and institutions positively impacting the lives of farmers and rural masses, according to an official statement here.

The awards will be presented at the Global Agriculture Leadership Summit on October 24 in New Delhi by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh. Prof Swaminathan and Odisha Governor Prof Ganeshi Lal will also be present besides over 400 global business leaders, experts and government officials.
