The Importance of Crop Production
Transcript of The Importance of Crop Production
Agriculture besides farming includes forestry, fruit cultivation, dairy farming, poultry farming, bee keeping and many more.
In modern times, marketing, processing, distribution and after-sales service are also accepted as a part of crop production.
Agriculture plays a crucial role in India's economy. Agriculture not only provides food and raw material, but also provides employment to a huge section of the population.
The following are more reasons why India is dependent on agriculture and its development.
Agriculture as a source of livelihood
Agriculture as a supplier of food and fodder
Agriculture's importance in international trade
Agriculture as a source of marketable surplus
Agriculture as a source of raw material
Contribution to foreign exchange resources
Agriculture as a source of employment
Agriculture as a source of revenue
Overall economic development
Agriculture employs a lot of people; raising their standard of life, the level of India's national income and its GDP as a giant leap forward towards development.
We hope that through the factors mentioned earlier and more, the importance of the further research and development of crop production in India has been established.
The main occupation of India's working population is agriculture. About 70 per cent of our population is directly engaged in agriculture.
Agriculture is the most important source of our national income, since it is the main occupation of India's population.
The agricultural sector also provides fodder for livestock and food to feed our country.
India's foreign trade is mainly fueled by its agricultural sector. Products such as tea, sugar, rice, tobacco and spices make up most of India's export goods.
The development of the agricultural sector leads to the stocking of marketable surplus.
As agricultural development takes place, output increases and marketable surplus expands. This can be sold to other countries.
Leading Indian industries such as cotton and jute textiles, sugar, tobacco, edible and non-edible oils, etc. depend on agriculture for their raw material.
India's agricultural sector constitutes an important place in the country's export trade. Agricultural commodities such as jute, tobacco, oil seeds, spices, raw cotton, tea and coffee are some high value exports from India that are considered resources for foreign exchange.
The agricultural sector in India provides the greatest employment opportunities among any other sector in the construction of irrigation projects, drainage system and other such activities.
In India, many state governments get sizable revenue from the agricultural sector. Land revenue, agricultural income tax, irrigation tax and other taxes are levied by both the Central and State governments.
The development of agriculture provides necessary capital for the development of other sectors such as industry, transport and foreign trade. Therefore, a balanced development of agriculture and industry is the need of the day.
