: India being an agricultural country the Improvements in agricultural productivity creates social and economic ripple
effects. With increased incomes, small farmers can better feed their families, send their children to school, provide for their
health, and invest in their farms to enhance the productivity. This makes their communities economically stronger and more
stable. Over the past hudnreds of years, nearly every part of the developed world has seen an agricultural transformation. As
mehtods of farming improved, so did incomes, health, and economies. During the Green Revolution, which took place from the
1960s to the 1980s, improvements in staple crops like maize, wheat, and rice helped double the amount of food produced,
survived hundreds of millions of lives, and drove broader development throughout much of Asia and Latin America. There
were also some serious unintended consequences—particularly regarding the environmental problems, which we need to take
into account. But the efforts demonstrated that large-scale progress against hunger and poverty is possible. In the last several
years, the global community has begun to refocus its attention on agriculture sector. Day to day rising in prices of food and
feeding growing population are prompting major private organizations and government organization to understand the
importance and urgency of this sector.
