The history of India’s development has been inexorably linked to that of its farmers, and the nation’s growth with that of its agriculture. The granaries in Harappa are the testament to our expertise in agriculture from ancient times. Sophisticated irrigation and water storage systems developed in the Indus Valley civilization around 4500 B.C contributed to a prosperous society. Later Vedic texts also have multiple references to agricultural technology and practices. This development continued through the centuries and today with innovations in agro-processing and biotechnology, agriculture does play a critical role in India’s flourishing economy.
