By Simon DuttonPublished Mar 01, 2020 02:23:37India’s agri-ecology sector is among the fastest growing in the world, and is projected to grow by 30% to 50% by 2030.
This is despite its poor land management and the fact that more than 80% of India’s agricultural land is in the hands of smallholders.
India is a major exporter of rice, wheat, cotton and sugar, and a key contributor to global food security.
But it is also facing a number of challenges.
First, the land is underdeveloped and often over-harvested, making it difficult to grow food.
India’s current food security plan aims to double the country’s crop area by 2050.
The country is also struggling with the effects of climate change, which will reduce yields and damage soil, water and wildlife.
But there are ways India can manage its agroecos and adapt to the changing environment, according to a report released by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR).
In the short term, this could include improving irrigation and agroforestry.
But the report warns that it will take time to change the agricultural landscape and ensure that the land that is left is protected and managed for its long-term health.
Agroecology is an important part of India is agroindustrial complex, which provides a livelihood to some 2.5 billion people.
This includes small-scale farmers and large-scale agricultural enterprises.
In India, these businesses are responsible for a substantial part of the countrys annual food production.
But, the report says, they also face a number is challenges due to climate and the changing climate.
The report highlights several ways India is facing a major food security challenge.
For instance, India has a large number of under-developed agroforests.
They are underdeveloped due to over-fishing, soil erosion, land acquisition, deforestation and over-utilisation of the natural resources.
It also lacks effective land management systems to ensure soil fertility and to protect soil biodiversity.
These include poor management of land and water resources, and poor land use practices, the study says.
Agricultural land in India is divided into six categories, according the report.
These are the most critical, the researchers say.
The top five categories include under-utilised land, over-exploitation of the resources, land degradation, erosion, water resources and overuse.
The fifth category is also the most neglected category.
The next category is the most vulnerable.
The report says this category includes areas where over-possession and overdevelopment of the soil has led to erosion, erosion and soil degradation.
The sixth category is that of marginal lands.
These are areas that have little or no vegetation, low soil fertility, little or limited soil organic matter and high levels of erosion.
The worst-hit categories are the under-exploitment and under-use of the land, the erosion of the forest, the degradation of soil resources and the degradation and depletion of water resources.
India has one of the highest per capita land use rates in the developing world, which is also a major contributor to climate-change-related stresses.
Agri-industrial complex (IIC) and land-use policiesIndia is a signatory to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, but it has not implemented any of its commitments to mitigate climate change and is failing to keep its greenhouse gas emissions under control, according a study by ICAR.
The Indian government has a policy to improve agroeconomic development by reducing deforestation, reducing over-use, promoting land-conservation and increasing the use of soil, the ICAR report says.
But it has also failed to reduce land use in the rural areas, especially land used for agriculture, the paper says.
The paper points to three factors that contribute to India’s food insecurity: poor land-management, inadequate soil fertility or poor land availability.
The study says this lack of soil fertility is a key issue, because it leads to overharvesting of crops and the erosion and loss of biodiversity.
The researchers note that India has limited land, which means it is unlikely to develop its agrieconomy as fast as developed countries, due to the high rates of poverty and lack of opportunities.
In addition, India is struggling with climate change as a result of its agricultural land being underdeveloped, the research says.
The study estimates that India’s agriculture could lose 25% of its crop area in the next 50 years.
Climate change is expected to make the world’s crop yields lower, especially for rice and wheat, the authors write.
The increase in temperatures will lead to more frequent and more intense droughts and more frequent floods, which could lead to further soil erosion and damage to crops.
The researchers say this could cause climate-related stress and potentially damage to agrobusiness.
