The word agriculture means production of crops. It encompasses all the allied activities like horticulture, sericulture, diary etc. Man started agriculture nearly 10000 years ago. From a nomadic hunter, he became a stationed cultivator. Since then, agriculture has developed into a science through ages. Agriculture plays a prominent role in the development of any economy. It provides basic food to the population of the country. No country, however advanced in any other sector, can afford to substitute agriculture with an alternative for its food requirements. Myrdal emphasized the importance of agriculture by saying “It is in the agricultural sector that the battle for long-term economic development will be won or lost.”
