Agriculture in India

Agriculture is the basis of the Indian Economy. Agriculture along with several other related sectors contributes nearly 25 per cent of Gross Domestic Production (GDP), whereas about 65-70 per cent of the population is dependent on agriculture for their livelihood. The yearly agricultural output depends on monsoon, as nearly 60 per cent of area sown is dependent on rainfall.
The State Governments submit Work Plan proposal under Macro Management Scheme for increasing production and productivity of various crops in the country. The individual crop-wise schemes are ICDP-Wheat, ICDP-Rice, ICDP-Coarse Cereals, Subacs and SJDP have been subsumed under Macro Management Mode since October 2001 to give more flexibility to the State Governments.
