Agriculture Wing 

 

Agriculture wing assists farmers in rural areas and provide solutions for their problems by discussing with responsible institutions, officials, researchers and keep updating rural areas with the new ways of farming, introducing new technologies in farming. The idea behind this wing's formation is to bring farmer and technology together to achieve profitable yields.

Agriculture in India has a long history dating back to ten thousand years. Today, India ranks second worldwide in farm output. Agriculture and allied sectors like forestry and logging accounted for 17.5% of the GDP in 2009, employed 52% of the total workforce and despite a steady decline of its share in the GDP, is still the largest economic sector and plays a significant role in the overall socio-economic development of India.

India is the largest producer in the world of milk, cashew nuts, coconuts, tea, ginger, turmeric and black pepper. It also has the world's largest cattle population (281 million). It is the second largest producer of wheat, rice, sugar, groundnut and inland fish. It is the third largest producer of tobacco. India accounts for 10% of the world fruit production with first rank in the production of banana and sapota. India's population is growing faster than its ability to produce rice and wheat.

This is the time for all to concentrate on Agriculture and to consider farmer to keep these records alive for coming years. If we fail now, then we not only end up loosing records but also getting basic food.
