Abstract

Agriculture is the backbone of any society and India is a global agricultural powerhouse. Agriculture gives food security to the swiftly growing population in the country as well as provides employment on a very large scale. India is currently the world’s second largest country in terms of population after China. The current population of the country is growing at an alarming rate and witnessing a horrific population explosion, which can lead to the problems of food insecurity, water, space, unemployment, poverty etc. The continuous population growth decreases the land sizes continuously, which directly affect the agricultural production of the country.  So, we have to set up a positive correlation between agriculture and population. Otherwise, we may face the risk of food shortage in coming years. The challenges of a large population and less agriculture can only be managed by identifying the core areas of research and development under different agricultural sectors. The present article will provide a brief dimension on some of these key issues.
