We can no longer afford to neglect our most Important natural resource. This is not simply an environmental problem but also one which is basic to the future India. The stark question before us is whether our soil will be productive enough to sustain a population of one billion by the end of this century at higher standards of living than now prevail, we must have long term plans to meet this contingency. Until quite recently, agriculture has been largely neglected by policy makers, economists and planners in many developing countries on the assumption that most of the resources would be devoted to industry. Only recently the awareness has grown that the preponderance of the agricultural sector in the economy of developing countries signifies that without progress in agriculture stagnation, will continue, per capita income will remain low, and the vicious circle of poverty and low productivity will be perpetuated. The agricultural sector in India which contributes nearly half of the national income, provides livelihood to about 3/4ths of the population and supplies the bulk of goods and raw materials required by the non-agricultural sectors. Transport, marketing, processing and other aspects of agricultural production and utilization have also a strong bearing on the national economy. Agriculture is not only an important economic activity but also a form of social heritage and a way of life for the millions of Indian farmers.
