Science, Technology and National Goals: A Study of the Role of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research in the Agricultural Development of India
The standard of living is low for the majority of people in developing countries such as India. Improvement of the living standard of the poor is, therefore, one of the most important tasks of the Indian government. Agriculture can play an important role in accomplishing this objective. This is so because the agricultural sector is the basic engine of economic development in the country and experiences elsewhere show that modern science-based agricultural technology can help to increase food production. Agricultural research can contribute much to society in terms of food production, economic growth and improved living standards.
