To give stagnant agricultural growth a boost, a shift must be made from concentrating on the country's food security to focusing on the farmers' income security. The green revolution, which is often characterised by the introduction of high-yielding variety of seeds and fertilisers, undoubtedly increased the productivity of land considerably. There have also been negative environmental effects in the form of depleting water table, emission of greenhouse gases, and the contamination of surface and ground water.

Agriculture in India
Abstract: This paper deals with the impact of Covid on the agricultural sector. The analysis is organised at the global level, but it has a specific focus on India. First, it reviews the overall food supply situation in the world and India to assess the possibilities of food crises. The paper finds that while the food situation in April and May appeared comfortable, there were likely to be widespread food shortages in countries dependent on food imports if the pandemic was prolonged.
This was particularly so if food exporting countries turned precautionary and restricted exports. In the case of many animal products, the paper finds that the drastic reduction in supplies created shortages in both the developed world and countries like India in April and May Secondly, it reviews the disruptions in food supply chains induced by the pandemic. International trade in agricultural goods shrank during the lockdown as imports fell and ports remained closed.
Detailed data across more than markets in India are analysed to understand the fall in daily market arrivals for 16 crops between March 15 and May 31 over and The number of reporting markets fell in this period. Of the 16 crops analysed, it was only in paddy, lentil, tomato and banana that market arrivals in constituted more than 75 per cent of market arrivals in Thirdly, analysis of prices indicates that global price indices for food, dairy and meat fell in April and May For India, we do not find an across the board rise in either wholesale or retail prices of agricultural goods during the lockdown.
The fall in wholesale price indices for cereals, vegetables, eggs and poultry chicken was indicative of low price realisation for the farmers. At the same time, the rise in urban CPI for cereals, vegetables, and egg, particularly in April , was indicative of tightening supply chains in these commodities. Finally, the Covid pandemic made the world recognise and appreciate the value of migrant labour.
After the lockdown began, the mobility of migrant workers was severely restricted and large numbers of migrant workers returned home. Agriculture was acutely affected; farms across the world suffered from the impacts of labour shortages. Keywords: Covid, agriculture, food security, migrant workers, supply chains, market arrivals, food prices. This paper deals with the impact of the Covid pandemic and the related lockdown on the agricultural sector. The analysis is informed by a global perspective, but has a specific focus on the Indian experience.
It deals with the following questions. First, does the world have enough food to feed its people? Secondly, what were the types of supply chain disruptions in agriculture, and how did these disruptions affect the supply of agricultural goods?
Thirdly, what were the trends in agricultural and food prices, at the wholesale and retail levels, during the lockdown? Finally, given that there were strong barriers to the movement of people, how did the absence of migrant workers affect agricultural operations? The broad reference period used is mid-March to end-May The impact of the Covid pandemic on the global economy has been profound.
The global economy was slowing down prior to the pandemic, unemployment was rising, and inequality levels were high. Unemployment levels were rising. Debt was building up in every country.
It was thus on a fragile global economy that the pandemic first arrived in February and March, As strict lockdowns were imposed, major economic activities came to a halt.
This led to enormous uncertainties, not just with respect to immediate economic growth and the livelihoods of people, but also with respect to the very future of capitalist development in its present form. A lockdown means that the production and supply of goods and services are disrupted, if not halted. Goods and services are not supplied in adequate quantities to meet existing demand. At the same time, as economic units are shut down, people lose jobs and wages.
When lockdowns are in place, people do not venture out to purchase goods and services. Thus, as a result of reduced consumption, aggregate effective demand also falls. Recent crises in the global real economy were caused by either demand slowdowns or supply shocks or speculations in financial markets.
The Covid lockdown was unique in that both demand and supply fell. This was not a normal circumstance; rarely in history has such a convergence of demand and supply shocks occurred in all economies at the same time, and as a consequence of a non-economic, exogenous cause.
With reduced economic activity, most debt repayments stop. A prolonged lockdown could, thus, lead to a banking and financial crisis.
Sectors dependent on exports face a fall in export demand and prices. In sectors dependent on imports of intermediate goods or raw material, imports and, consequently, production, stop.
Remittances fall, reducing foreign exchange reserves. The pandemic, thus, extends from being a health crisis into becoming a global economic crisis as well.
That such a pandemic would adversely affect the agricultural sector is self-evident. To begin with, farmers face difficulties in every aspect of farming, from the purchase of inputs, sowing, and labour use, to harvesting, marketing, and processing. Problems of labour use are most acute in regions that depend on migrant labour. The disruption of supply chains leads to shrinking markets and falling output prices.
With respect to consumer prices, even if farm gate prices fall, market arrangements and the disruption of supply chains can lead to a rise in retail prices. Consumers face the challenge of gaining access to adequate quantities of food at affordable prices. The absence of adequate quantities of food and rising retail food prices lead to a rise in hunger and malnourishment, particularly among the poor. In the period immediately before the pandemic, farmers in different countries were suffering the impact of desert locusts eastern Africa; Near East; Pakistan , fall armyworm eastern Africa , African swine fever China , drought Indonesia , and floods Somalia.
In India, acute distress among the poor has been a feature of the agrarian sector for at least two decades. According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation FAO , about million people in the world were experiencing acute levels of food insecurity before the pandemic FAO a. The number of malnourished children is estimated to rise by 10 million. Total world production of rice and wheat is expected to be a record 1.
As on April 2, , the global production of rice and wheat were estimated at million tonnes and million tonnes respectively. This was more than the global annual consumption of rice and wheat in — Fresh harvests from multiple countries over the next few months are expected to further bolster the production figures. Figure 1 World production and stock of rice, —11 to —20 in million tonne. Figure 2 World production and stock of wheat, —11 to —20 in million tonne.
The world stocks of rice and wheat were also higher in —20 as compared to , at million tonnes Figures 1 and 2. As on May 7, , rice stocks were estimated at million tonnes and wheat stocks were estimated at million tonnes. This translates into a stocks-to-use ratio SUR , i. The SURs for cereals as a whole was Table 1 Stocks-to-use ratio SUR of rice, wheat, and cereals, world, —11 to — In the beginning of April , the global stocks of wheat were adequate to feed the world for about 4.
Similarly, the global stocks of rice were adequate to feed the world for about 4. In countries acutely dependent on food grain imports, the space was more limited. Major importers of rice like Nigeria and Saudi Arabia had about 1.
In other words, if the major exporting countries restricted, or banned, trade, and if the lockdown was prolonged, then countries dependent on grain imports were likely to face food shortages. World stocks are different from national stocks. National stocks are unequally distributed geographically. FAO data show that of the global wheat stock of million tonnes in April , China held about 45 per cent.
The largest eight wheat exporters, together, held another 20 per cent of the global wheat stock. Of the global rice stock of million tonnes in April , China held 56 per cent and India held 18 per cent. At the same time, major importers of rice and wheat, such as China, Egypt, the Philippines, Algeria and Morocco, announced plans to ramp up their stocks through fresh imports Terazono, Saleh, and Reed However, global trade was expected to slow down with most exporters adopting a precautionary stance.
In March and April , 15 countries had actively binding export restrictions on food items Debucquet Kazakhstan, a major wheat exporter, suspended its exports of wheat flour, buckwheat, and sunflower oil.
It introduced a quota system to restrict exports of wheat and other grains. However, this self-imposed quota on grain exports applicable for the three months of April, May, and June was exhausted by April 26, , itself. It suspended its exports in March and limited its exports in April to , tonnes. By end-April , there was a partial lifting of the suspension. Full resumption of Vietnamese exports was to wait till the end of May Exports of rice from Thailand fell in April If India too banned rice exports, world trade in rice was expected to fall drastically.
The 15 export restrictions that were in place in March and April were less in number and quantum when compared to the export restrictions imposed during the global food crisis of — Yet, the shocks were to be large for specific countries for instance, for a country like Kyrgyzstan receives about 50 per cent of its calorie consumption from imports. Also, indications are that a prolonged lockdown may force more countries to impose export restrictions.
This stock was more than three times the specified minimum operational buffer-cum-strategic stock of With the rabi wheat harvest in April and May , the situation was expected to ease further. Here again, the inflow of rabi pulses into the market in April and May, , was expected to ease the situation further.
Unlike cereals, the production and market arrivals of animal products is not a seasonal activity. Milk, butter, cheese, meat and eggs arrive in the market on a daily basis, and stocks are not an appropriate indicator to assess their market conditions.
The impact of the Green Revolution on indigenous crops of India
The important cereals are - wheat, paddy, sorghum, millet Bajra , barley and maize etc. According to the final estimate for the year by ministry of agriculture of India, the production of major cereals like rice, maize and bajra stood at The huge demand for cereals in the global market is creating an excellent environment for the export of Indian cereal products. In , India had imposed ban on export of rice and wheat etc to meet domestic needs. Now, seeing the huge demand in the global market and country's surplus production, Country has lifted the ban, but only limited amount of export of the commodity are allowed. The allowed marginal quantity of exports cereals could not make any significant impact either on domestic prices or the storage conditions.
Madhya Pradesh, with its large area, enjoys diverse climatic and soil conditions suitable for a broad range of agricultural products. Agriculture sector in Madhya Pradesh forms the backbone of its economy. It contributes almost one-fourth of the Gross State Domestic Product GSDP and is the main source of employment for over 65 percent of the population and constitutes about 75 percent of the rural income. The state is a large producer of soybean and wheat. Sharbati variety of famous wheat is grown in Sehore, Vidisha and Ashok Nagar districts, and in some parts of Bhopal and Hoshangabad. Madhya Pradesh leads in the production of gram, linseed, green pea, garlic and coriander.

History of agriculture in the Indian subcontinent
Indian agriculture mcbegan by BCE on north-west India as a result of early cultivation of plants, and domestication of crops and animals. The middle ages saw irrigation channels reach a new level of sophistication in India and Indian crops affecting the economies of other regions of the world. Land and water management systems were developed with an aim of providing uniform growth. In the period of the Neolithic revolution , roughly BCE,  Agro pastoralism in India included threshing, planting crops in rows—either of two or of six—and storing grain in granaries. According to Gangal et al.

Metrics details. The Green Revolution in India was initiated in the s by introducing high-yielding varieties of rice and wheat to increase food production in order to alleviate hunger and poverty. Post-Green Revolution, the production of wheat and rice doubled due to initiatives of the government, but the production of other food crops such as indigenous rice varieties and millets declined. This led to the loss of distinct indigenous crops from cultivation and also caused extinction.
Chhattisgarh the 26th state of the Indian Union came into existence on November 1,
In , agriculture and allied sectors like animal husbandry , forestry and fisheries accounted for Still, agriculture is demographically the broadest economic sector and plays a significant role in the overall socio-economic fabric of India. As per the FAO world agriculture statistics India is the world's largest producer of many fresh fruits like banana, mango, guava, papaya, lemon and vegetables like chickpea, okra and milk , major spices like chili pepper, ginger, fibrous crops such as jute , staples such as millets and castor oil seed. India is the second largest producer of wheat and rice , the world's major food staples. India is currently the world's second largest producer of several dry fruits , agriculture-based textile raw materials, roots and tuber crops, pulses , farmed fish , eggs , coconut , sugarcane and numerous vegetables. One report from claimed that India's population is growing faster than its ability to produce rice and wheat.
Let us make in-depth study of the effect of initiatives taken on agricultural production and productivity in India. Since the introduction of economic planning in India, agricultural development has been receiving a special emphasis. It was only after , i. Since then, a huge amount of fund was allocated for the development and modernization of this agricultural sector every year. In India the growth in gross area under all crops has increased from million hectares in to million hectares in and then it increased to
Simultaneously, trends in overweight and obesity, along with micronutrient deficiency, portend a future public health crisis. We explore various challenges and opportunities to achieve a nutrition secure future. We bring together the latest data available on development processes in India to 1 highlight the nature of food system challenges, 2 identify trends and threats to progress, 3 emphasize policy and institutional interventions needed to address challenges and 4 set an agenda interlinking agricultural development, health and nutrition and economic development. The Green Revolution in the s followed by the liberalization of the Indian economy in the s has been credited with shepherding India onto a path of high growth. Over the last decade, increases in per capita incomes, greater urbanization rates, increase in literacy rates, population growth and poverty reduction have characterized this high growth process. While agricultural development has brought about income generating opportunities to some in the farming sector, in a small farm dominant country like India, poor infrastructure and a lack of institutional support have excluded many smallholders from benefiting from the growth process.
India. Data on important variables such as area, production, input use, and value of output were compiled for the cereals and pulses toward high value crops like sugarcane and sicm1.org Vaidyanathan, A.
Быстро опускалась ночь. Капля Росы. Что-то в этом абсурдном имени тревожно сверлило его мозг. Капля Росы. Он слышал приятный голос сеньора Ролдана из агентства сопровождения Белена. У нас только две рыжеволосые… Две рыжеволосые, Иммакулада и Росио… Росио… Росио… Беккер остановился как вкопанный.
Беккер прижался к стене спиной, внезапно ощутив все камушки под подошвами, все бугорки штукатурки на стене, впившиеся в спину. Мысли его перенеслись назад, в детство. Родители… Сьюзан. О Боже… Сьюзан. Впервые с детских лет Беккер начал молиться. Он молился не об избавлении от смерти - в чудеса он не верил; он молился о том, чтобы женщина, от которой был так далеко, нашла в себе силы, чтобы ни на мгновение не усомнилась в его любви. Он закрыл глаза, и воспоминания хлынули бурным потоком.
Беккер вспомнил синеватый шрам на груди Танкадо. - Быть может, искусственное дыхание делали санитары. - Да нет, конечно! - Клушар почему-то улыбнулся. - Какой смысл хлестать мертвую кобылу. Парень был уже мертв, когда прибыла скорая.
