Krishi Samriddhi - For Cultivators
Assam is predominantly an agricultural state. Over 90% of its population live in rural areas and are dependent on agriculture and this sector contributes more than 43% to the Net State Domestic Product. The geographical location, physiographic, climatic features, ethnic diversity, socio-cultural sphere are some of the peculiar features of the people of the state. By and large, crop production and animal husbandry have been way of the life rather than any commercial enterprises. The progress made in agricultural sector during the last five decades is comparatively less in Assam as compared to others stats. This is ascribed mainly to natural phenomenon, infrastructural deficiencies, inadequate input supply and extension support. Agriculture has been practiced in most traditional way.
