Present Scenario of Agriculture in Uttarakhand


Awareness and Use of Agricultural Market Intelligence

The history of agricultural development in India shows that Indian Agriculture was unable to feed the 45 crores of its population during late 1960 necessitating huge imports of food grains. Now in the 21st Century, India is able to feed its population of more than 100 crores, besides, providing raw materials for clothing and industrial purposes after a reasonable amount of export. Thus there is a very huge increase in the production side in many agricultural commodities but there is not more positive reflection of this in the level of living of farmers.
