RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN INDIAN AGRICULTURE AND GLOBAL SCENARIO
Agricultural development is an essential requirement for economic development of any country. It offers support to farmers or crop growers by supplying them with a variety of agricultural support. The provision of protection, assistance in the field of science, the use of advanced techniques, the control of pests and the facilitation of diversity all come into the category of agricultural production. Development in the field of agriculture is indispensable to fulfill the demand of food of world population especially non agriculture workers who solely depend on farmers for their livelihood. It also provides raw material for the industries and earn foreign currency through the trade of agriculture product. In colonial rule, there was neither equity nor development in the agricultural division. The policy and rulers of independent India resolved these problems through land reform and the advancement of the use of 'High Yielding Variety' (HYV) seeds that led to the revolution in Indian agriculture. Participation of Government agencies and private players in the agriculture research and development boost the output of agriculture production.
