Abstract
Indian Agriculture is facing several challenges. These include sustaining investment, climate change, high fluctuations in prices and production, undeveloped markets, relative profitability of Agriculture vis-a-vis other sectors, raising small holder productivity, providing livelihood to large numbers, containing the cost of production and retaining International Competitiveness. Opportunities available for development include, diverse agro-climatic conditions, high domestic demand and large domestic market, fertile soils, capability for adoption of S&T for agriculture, access to global markets, enterprising farming community, well developed research and extension capabilities, scope for increasing cropping intensity. Areas for focus include dry land farming, wasteland development, precision farming-horticulture development, supply chain- storage, processing, cold chain development, commodity exchanges/futures markets, food processing and value addition activities, grading and standardization of produce; focus on fisheries, livestock development, dairying and organic farming. To face the challenges and realize the potential for development following policy areas need attention. These are Marketing Reforms particularly APMC reforms, development of competitive national market, encouraging contract farming, producer companies and cooperatives, modernization of seed farming, developing integrated food law, development of rural infrastructure and rural extension services, and agro-based food processing and cold chain development, modernizing credit markets. Additional policy measures should encompass risk reduction through insurance, adopting technology and organic farming.
