    About the Book :

    Agriculture in India remains the mainstay because 58 percent of its population depends for their livelihood; so, agriculture is not only the source of food and employment but it is the way of life.

    Various problems concerning agriculture should be given proper attention in any scheme of economic development of our country. Though their deeper implications have been fully realized, yet they have not been viewed in proper perspective and particularly in relation to policies and programmes for overcoming the agrarian crisis and farming system prevailing since a pretty long period of time. It is rather unfortunate that six decades of planning have not been able to bring a breakthrough in agriculture sector where there is a vicious circle of poverty of the vast majority of our agricultural population.

    This book is a compilation of different discerning view of many authors which will be beneficial to learners. An attempt has been made to focus attention on issues and to point out with the help of facts and figures which would form the basis for future plans for the agricultural development of the country. This book will depict outlines, the direction in which future agro-economic development should take place. More emphasis has been given on the priorities of organic and precision farming in India for obtaining the maximum production with minimum expenditure of resources and proportionate investment or inputs. The crisis of Indian agriculture can be removed by changing the conventional or traditional farming by adopting organic and precision farming.
