In India, agriculture is considered as the backbone of the economy as the majority of the population is engaged in agriculture to earn its livelihood. It is understood that India has the second-largest arable land resources in the world and is the largest producer of spices, pulses, milk, tea, cashew, and jute, and the second largest producer of wheat, rice, fruits and vegetables, sugarcane, cotton, and oilseeds. Food grain statistics reveal that during the year 2019-20 crop year, food grain production reached to a record of 296.65 million tonnes. Whereas, the target set by the Government of India in 2020-21 for food grain production is of the order of 298 MT.
