The agriculture industry plays an important role in India as it provides employment to a major section of the Indian population. Earlier, farmers used primitive methods for cultivation, irrigation and farming, but these methods were not giving fruitful results. The government of India then decided to use the experts' knowledge in order to improve the productivity of this industry.
It is very important for everyone to know about agriculture. Our lives depend on agricultural food. One must study/read/know about agriculture.
