Impact of Rainfall on Indian Economy: With Reference to Crop Production
It is a well-known fact that agriculture is measured as the strength of India’s economy. The world wide studies through different researchers have shown that the rainfall has great impact on the crop production which ultimately influences our economy. In India we could differentiate the different type of available crops broadly as Rabi, Kharif and Zaid where the growth of Kharif crop majorly depends on the rainfall. This growth of crop ultimately impacts the Indian economy as 22.5 percent of Rajasthan state’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product) comes from agriculture alone. This paper is presented here to analyze the impact of rainfall on the productivity of different kind of crops and to evaluate the economic effect of Kharif crop production onto it which furtherinfluences the states GDP growth.
