The largest portion of the natural resources of India consists of land and by far the largest number of its inhabitants is engaged in agriculture. Therefore, in any scheme of economic development of the country, agriculture holds a position of basic importance. Agricultural sector occupies a key position in the Indian economy and provides employment to about 65 per cent of the working population of India. The economic development process guided by the market- driven parameters has benefited selected sections of society. The fruits of liberalisation and globalisation have not percolated to the agricultural and rural sectors sufficiently. The farming community is by and large in crisis due to non-protective attitude of the government. The agriculture has become unviable with liberalised imports, global competitiveness and volatile nature of market prices. The present volume contains research findings of scholars specialising in different aspects of Indian agriculture.
