Agriculture



An agrarian economy since time immemorial, about 77% of Assam's workforce is engaged agriculture and allied activities contributing roughly 40% to the state's GDP. Roughly 40% of the total area is cultivated.


Multi Cropping in Agricultural Sector:

A vast majority of our farmers in Assam is still saddled with a single crop i.e. a long duration 'Sali' paddy cultivation and after harvesting the agricultural fields in Assam remains idle for the rest of the year. As such, a massive thrust has to be put in the agriculture sector for inducing short duration high yielding variety of multi cropping in the same field in a year so that the average income of a farmer's household can be multiplied. Naturally, income multiplication in rural area would create massive demand for various goods and economic services and resultant investment would in turn create employment opportunities. Income multiplication in rural area has got direct bearing on investment opportunities in our state.
