  • Abstract

    One of the most important sectors for contributing to the economy of the Nation is Agriculture. About 1300 million of the total population especially in the rural side of India is mainly dependent upon agriculture. But recently in most of the research studies, there exists a debate about the failures in the policy framed in this sector and the status is also confirmed with the GDP growth in Agriculture which was found very low when compared to other sectors, especially industries and services. Even the sharing of the workforce in this sector and the net state domestic product (NSDP) was also drastically reduced over the previous decade. Hence it is necessary for the policymakers to tackle the issues so as to give life to the agriculture sector by making necessary amendments to the existing policies. Taking this issue as a core for this study, the researcher has discussed various parameters for improving the performance of the sector and concluded that the change in the structure of agriculture was quite significant and gets reflected in many other indicators too for uplifting the sector in the international level business.
