Agricultural development in India since independence






The Indian economy and its performance since independence: 194-205

Agricultural development in India since independence

The post-independence performance of Indian agriculture is examined and the main challenges confronting the sector identified. There has been a rapid growth of Indian agriculture since independence, reflecting the importance accorded to the sector in various policy decisions. However, India is only marginally self-sufficient in food grains and is still a net importer of oilseeds. Distortions have been introduced into Indian agriculture by both technological and institutional factors.
