The share of agriculture in the aggregate economy of India has declined rapidly during the planned development of the country. India is still the country with the poorest people on our globe: of India's 742 million these live in rural areas. Most people in rural India depend directly or indirectly on farming for their livelihood. Despite this not enough attention has been given to agriculture to overcome poverty. The report on the State of Indian Agriculture place by the government to the Rajya Sabha on 13th March 2012 calls for wide-ranging reforms in agriculture sector to enable it to meet the growing demands and meet the challenges posed by various human and environmental factors. Agriculture is an important sector of the Indian Economy.
