agriculture in India: current scenario
Agriculture Before NAMO
Before the formation of Modi government hardly any minister had a visit at Indian Agriculture Research Institute. But after formation of NDA government IARI became popular among farmers and even students, who even were unaware about ariculturtural sciences. Looking at our GDP (Gross Domestic Product) ariculture contributes more than 15%. The highest growth rate seen was 6.20% and the lowest was -2.30% which needs to be appritiated.
Suicides of Farmers
The above image shows the hell-mark of suicide of farmers in India. The government needs to think over this very sensitive topic.
Export of Agricultural Goods.
India is 2nd in production of fruits, vegetables and dairy farming. The first position is held by China. Since, our country population is so high that half our production is itself consumed in our country. In the past few years, the export in floriculture was around 25% and export of fruits and vegetables was around 8%. The export of animal products was very high and was estimated as 33%. Since, India is very good in cereals production the export percentage was 73%.
The country needs to think about the farmers suicide and need to implement some policies to save our country's farmers from attempting suicide. Moreover; we have made progress in the leadership of our Prime Minister.
