Chapter

Abstract

The agricultural policy in India has evolved from a focus on achieving self-sufficiency in crop production in general and foodgrains in particular and food security concerns to enhancing the competitiveness of the Indian agriculture and diversification of agriculture. Policy support for agricultural markets, inputs and services, technology, product price support, institutions and infrastructure has led to an increase in area, production, and yield of foodgrains and other agricultural commodities. India became self-sufficient, and in fact witnessed surplus in foodgrains in the late-1980s.
