Abstract: India has been largely an agrarian society. The agricultural sector contributes nearly 26 per cent to the gross domestic product and provides livelihood to two-thirds of the population. Agricultural production has recorded remarkable growth over the past few decades. Food-grain production increased from 62.5 Million Tonnes (MT) in 1965 to 209 MT in 1999-2000. Adoption of modern technological practices, involving improved irrigation, high-yielding varieties, agro-chemicals and farm mechanization has made notable contributions towards raising the food production in India.
