Loss in agriculture in Indian means the loss in the nation’s economy as the Agriculture plays in important role in the nation’s development. As drought is already a big issue in india. India faces huges losses every year due to the droughts.

The Indian Government is promoting the farming at every cost but due to lack of knowledge and lack of response system non of any scehemes are running fine. Due to the manpower, the state government may also engage some reputed NGOs to work on this mission under the Distrcit level Architecture’s command.
