While agriculture and its allied sectors had shown a decline of 1.1 per cent, the standalone agriculture sector declined by 13.3 per cent during the year. Farmers had to cut down on the paddy area due to non-availability of water. The paddy area fell by 3.69 lakh ha to 10.46 lakh ha. The area under maize too saw a decline to 5.73 lakh ha from the average 7 lakh ha.
