Abstract

India is a country where almost 70% population is directly or indirectly engaged in agriculture activities, making it a global powerhouse in agriculture. There are so many agricultural revolutions that have helped India become the world’s leading agricultural producer. The Indian government has encouraged the farmers with so many schemes and subsidies to help the farmers so that they can get financial assistance along with other agricultural innovative ideas. Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) has played a major role in training, sharing innovative ideas, technology transfer to farmers which has helped the farmers to produce more agricultural products. There are several agricultural revolutions which have been followed in different fields of agriculture for the productions of grains, milk, meat, eggs, oilseeds, fertilizers, etc.

Keywords: Agricultural revolutions, powerhouse, food security, pesticides
