Agriculture in India along with its allied sectors is a significant contributor to India’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and is also the largest livelihood provider. According to the Economic Survey 2020-21, GDP contribution by the agriculture sector is likely to be 19.9% in 2020-21, increasing from 17.8% recorded in 2019-20. Over the years, the government has taken major steps to aid and enhance the agriculture sector with proven farming technologies and supportive policies. The recent evolution of digital technology in farming will further accelerate growth by ensuring higher crop yields and enhance sustainability by reducing water consumption and the use of agrochemicals.
