Default Re: Agriculture in India today

As you have asked about the Agriculture in India, I am giving you some information about it
Agriculture in India dates back to the Rigveda.

Today, India ranks second worldwide in farm output. Agriculture and allied sectors like forestry and fisheries accounted for 13.7% of the GDP.

The economic contribution of agriculture to India's GDP is steadily declining with the country's broad-based economic growth. Still, agriculture is demographically the broadest economic sector and plays a significant role in the overall socio-economic fabric of India.

India exported $39 billion worth of agricultural products in 2013, making it the seventh largest agricultural exporter worldwide and the sixth largest net exporter

As per the 2010 FAO world agriculture statistics, India is the world's largest producer of many fresh fruits and vegetables, milk, major spices, select fibrous crops such as jute, staples such as millets and castor oil seed.

India is the 2nd largest producer of wheat and rice, the world's major food staples.

India is the world's 2nd or 3rd largest producer of several dry fruits, agriculture-based textile raw materials, roots and tuber crops, pulses, farmed fish, eggs, coconut, sugarcane and numerous vegetables.

India ranked in the world's 5 largest producers of over 80% of agricultural produce items, including many cash crops such as coffee and cotton, in 2010.[6] India is one of the world's five largest producers of livestock and poultry meat, with one of the fastest growth rates, as of 2011
