Agriculture is the primary source of livelihood for about 58% of India's population i.e. more than half of this country with 1.3 Bn people. So, calling it a vital sector is probably understating the important role it plays in the Indian economy. As per Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF)'s 2017 sectoral report, agriculture, along with fisheries and forestry, is one of the largest contributors to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The GDP of agriculture and allied sectors in India was recorded at $ 244.74 Bn in FY16.
