Author(s): Roop Lal Sharma, Ajay Kumar Sharma and Meenakshi Gupta,

Agriculture in any country is considered as a lifeline of the economy because it contributes to the growth of the economy. There are three sectors in the economy that are primary, secondary and tertiary. Primary sector is based on agriculture activities, while the secondary sector is based on construction and manufacturing activities and the tertiary sector is based on the service sector. Without agriculture none of this sector can exist because agriculture is a main producer that belongs to the primary sector. The goods produced from agriculture are given to the secondary sector as a raw material for manufacturing. To live it is necessary to eat and that can be obtained by agriculture. Every country wants to become self-sufficient in agriculture. That means they can fulfil their population by their own country's production.
