1. Agriculture - Geography 2. FARMING! - Nitin 3. Introduction.!! Agriculture is a primary activity which produces most of the food which we consume. Two-thirds of Indias population is engaged in agricultural activities 4. Industries based on agricultural rawmaterials There are many industries based on agricultural raw materials. Agriculture is the science and art of cultivating plants and livestock. Agriculture was the key development in the rise of sedentary human civilization, whereby farming of domesticated species created food surpluses that enabled people to live in cities. The history of agriculture began thousands of years ago. After gathering wild grains beginning at least , years ago, nascent farmers.
The Indian subcontinent. Research indicates two early stages of agricultural development in South Asia. In the earlier stage, dating roughly from to bp, agriculture was being established in parts of Pakistan, in the northwesternmost part of the the ancient site of Mehrgarh, where the earliest evidence has been found, barley was the dominant crop and was apparently. This chapter presents a comprehensive review of the works done on contemporary themes in agricultural geography such as cropping pattern, crop combinations, crop diversifications, agricultural productivity and efficiency. Agricultural geographers have remained widely engaged with these themes largely because of their relevance at the local levels under the fast increasing international market.

Major reasons for low productivity of agricultural crops in India are varied agro climatic conditions, pre dominantly rain-fed agriculture, inefficient use of irrigation resources, weather extremities, fragmented land holdings, complex diseases and pests scenario, low use of good quality seeds and low adoption of improved package of practices, etc.
Lal, in Climate Vulnerability, Food Demand. The doubling of agricultural production between and by adoption of the Green Revolution technologies was brought about through increases in inputs by 7 times for nitrogenous fertilizers, times for phosphatic fertilizers, times for the irrigated cropland area, and times increase in the arable land area (Tilman.
Agriculture in India. In the production of agricultural products was approximately worth RS 38 billion, hence, making India the seventh largest agricultural exporter.
India is second in agricultural outputs and therefore GDP of the country is based on agriculture. Rice, Milk, Sugar Cane and Wheat are the crops yielding highest outputs.

Solution: a. India is an agricultural country. Nearly two-thirds of its population. Problems of Indian Agriculture (i) Dependence on Erratic Monsoon- Irrigation covers only about 33 percent of the cultivated area in India. The crop production in rest of the cultivated land directly depends on rainfall.
Poor performance of south-west Monsoon also adversely affects the supply of canal water for irrigation.(ii) Low productivity- The yield of the crops in the country is low in. comply with high production and quality standards required by the importing countries.
Agriculture contributes around 17% to GDP and continues to be among the most important and success-ful sectors in India. Around 58% of the Indian population depend on agriculture for their livelihood. Apart.

The low productivity in India is a result of the following factors: According to World Bank's "India: Priorities for Agriculture and Rural Development", India's large agricultural subsidies are hampering productivity-enhancing investment.
Overregulation of agriculture has increased AGRICULTURE IN INDIA 1. This survey of research on economic geography in two volumes is part of a series undertaken by the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR) sincecovering various social science disciplines.
It aims to understand spatial organization vis-à-vis socio-economic development in India, during the period – An important area of focus is the country’s urban-centric economic. Agriculture productivity, growth and regional change in post-colonial India from a spatial perspective are yet to be rigorously examined.
In particular, the impacts of economic liberalisation, globalisation and deregulation are not being empirically investigated at a small-area level using advanced statistical and spatial techniques.
The Indian farmer had discovered and begun farming many spices and sugarcane more than years ago. Did you know that our country is the 2 nd largest producer of agricultural products in the world.
In fact, agriculture contributes as much as % (as of ) to our Gross Domestic Product (GDP).Let us find out about the different methods adopted by an Indian farmer and how it helps him grow.
about 10%. Sustainable agriculture, therefore, provides the opportunity to increase food production, reduce dependency on external resources, and reduce environmental degradation.
But food production is only part of the picture. Food security cannot be achieved without significant improvements to people's entitlements and access to food.
ADVERTISEMENTS: Six main objectives of agricultural geography are as follows: (i) To examine the spatial distribution of crops, livestock and other agricultural activities.
The cropping patterns and crop and livestock combinations vary in space and time. For example, the crop associations of Punjab and Haryana are different from those of Rajasthan, Bihar and West Bengal. [ ]. Amitav Bhattacharya, in Changing Climate and Resource Use Efficiency in Plants, Mulching.
Rainfed agriculture covers 80% of the world’s cultivated land, and contributes about 60% to the total crop production (UNESCO, ).Low productivity in many arid and semiarid rainfed agricultural systems is often due to degraded soil fertility and limited water and nutrients input.
Over the past 50 years, productivity growth in agriculture has allowed food to become more abundant and cheaper even as world population more than doubled (see Growth in Global Agricultural Productivity: An Update, Amber Waves, Novemberand New Evidence Points to Robust But Uneven Productivity Growth in Global Agriculture, Amber Waves.
Before independence the productivity of food grains in India showed a the introduction of economic planning inand with special emphasis on agricultural development, there was a steady increase in the area, productivity as well as in yield per hectare.
Why is agricultural productivity so low in poor countries relative to the rest of the world. Is it due to geography or constrained economic choices. We assess the quantitative role of geography and land quality for agricultural productivity differences across countries using high-resolution micro-geography data and a spatial accounting framework.
ADVERTISEMENTS: The measurement of production and inputs required for the production of that output is known as agricultural productivity. In other words, it is an input-output ratio. In traditional measurement of agricultural productivity geographers and economists used to take into account the inputs like labour and capital and see them as costs which are incurred [ ].A analysis of India's agricultural growth from to by the Food and Agriculture Organization identified systemic problems in Indian agriculture.
For food staples, the annual growth rate in production during the six-year segments –76, –82, –88, –, – were found to be respectively,2.This book explains in depth the issues and challenges faced by rice farmers in India in relation to production and productivity, and the possible adaptation strategies to climate change.
Based on five years of groundbreaking research on emerging trends in cultivation in major rice growing regions in India, it begins by describing production and.
