Agriculture is the mainstay of Indian economy. With more than half of the population depending on agriculture and related activities, agriculture forms the backbone of Indian economy. The sector suffers from different issues related to over abundance of labourers, lack of proper irrigation facilities, lack of proper storage, complex marketing methods, complicated credit opportunities etc. These issues have become hurdles in the development of agricultural sector. Government has adopted different policies in order to address these issues and more actions are needed in order to improve the sector. India being an agrarian nation, agriculture cannot be neglected. Carefully planned policies need to be adopted to remove the shortcomings in the sector.
