In India, agriculture is the primary source of livelihood for close to 60% of households in rural areas. Together with forestry and fisheries, it is one of the largest contributors to India’s GDP. India is home to over 20 agri-climatic regions, which are exposed to 15 different climate types. The country boasts 46 of the 60 different types of soils known in the world. Because of its size, and its climatic and soil diversity, India has two agricultural seasons – kharif (summer) and rabi (winter) – within one calendar year. FY2019* was not turbulent for agriculture in India, whereas FY2020, ending on March 31, 2020 saw the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The disease and the panic associated with it have so far caused a drop in farmgate and commodity prices of agricultural produce, as well as uncertainty regarding agricultural foreign trade.
