FARMING IN INDIA: FROM INDEPENDENCE TILL NOW- THE JOURNEY

19 Aug, 2020

Agriculture in India dates back to Indus Valley Civilization Era and even before that in some parts of Southern India. Today, India ranks second worldwide in farm output. Agriculture has always been pivotal for Indian economy since independence.It plays a crucial role in alleviating poverty and ensuring the sustainable development of the economy.

Farm suicides are the outcome of the continued neglect and apathy of the farm sector. Besides the policymakers, a significant role is also played by agriculture scientists and economists. About 20 years after the Green Revolution began, and somewhere in the early 1990s, the global economic thinking shifted to shrinking agriculture and boosting industry.

 

ISSUES AND CHALLENGES MAJOR ISSUES
