Agriculture is important for our economy. It employs more than 60% rural labours in our country. It provides employment and food for millions of people in India.
However, with the liberalization in 1991, our industrial growth and GDP have moved fast; but the agricultural growth has not moved yet. Today, agriculture sector’s contribution in our GDP is only around 17%, and we need to take necessary steps to increase it. Our agricultural production is stagnant for the last few years, and one major reason is climatic conditions.
In we want to improve our agricultural production; we will need better technology and processes. We will also have to think alternate crop that don’t require much water and need to change the crop, so we can get the crop during off time. Agriculture plays an important role in the economy, and we need to revive it.
