Indian Agriculture:Meeting the Challenge of Climate Change

One of the major achievements of the country has been food self sufficiency in spite of rapid population increase, which has reached about 1.21 billion (Census 2011). The Green Revolution Technology has transformed the country from a food deficit to a food self sufficient one in recent times. During the 11th Plan Period (2007-08 to 2012-13), the average annual growth in agriculture and allied sector has been 3.6 per cent, highest during the recent decade, even though it is short of the targeted 4 per cent, which was set as the targeted growth for 12th Five Year Plan.
