Abstract
Agricultural plays a pivotal role in Indian economy and this sector?s better performance is vital for inclusive growth. Although its contribution to GDP is now less than one fourth, it provides employment to nearly half of Indian workforce. Now a day?s Indian agriculture sector is facing problems related to low surplus generation, low growth rate of technological advancement, environmental stress due to climate change, low level of managerial skill and various structural and institutional problems. Green technology (GT) is one of the approaches that would sustain and increase the food production through reducing the environmental stress and damages and contributes to both sustainable agriculture development (SAD) and poverty reduction. SAD is characterised by socially acceptable, economically efficient with the less environmental costs. The risk of food insecurity and rising food prices because of low surplus generation in agriculture sector and further climate change has also been negatively impacted on the agricultural productivity. Adoption of GT is one of the valuable approach that can improve long term sustainability in agriculture production and liable to break the vicious circle of poverty. Although for the improving the agricultural productivity there is also need to focus on various structural and institutional reforms like credit and marketing facilities. This paper will examine the role of green technology in sustainable agriculture development, why there is need for green technology? And what are the issues, approaches and challenges regarding green technology and sustainable agricultural development? This paper will be based on the secondary data
