Bengal and Karnataka are the biggest source of food imports in India, accounting for around 90% of the country’s exports.
That means if a country such as India has to import food, it needs to import a lot of food.
But there is a shortage.
The government is trying to address the shortage by boosting food production.
But the new crop management plan will only get you so far.
The new crop-management plan will get you only so far, said Bishnoi Yadav, a member of the Karnataka legislature and former deputy chief minister of Kolkata.
The plan has already seen its share of controversy.
The state’s top food scientist, Suresh Srivastava, had told a parliamentary committee in February that the new scheme could boost food production by 40%, but the state’s food regulator, the Centre for Science and Technology (CST), has rejected that claim.
The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) also issued a notice in March to the state government, asking it to provide a more detailed explanation.
The latest crop-maintaining plan, on the other hand, has some good things going for it.
The state government has said it will make the plan more ambitious, including increasing production from 30 million tonnes per annum to 40 million tonnes.
The plan says production should grow at a rate of 5-10% a year.
The farmers will also be able to plant more crops.
They can also produce more food.
“They will have more room to grow their crops,” said K. Raghuvanshi, director of the Kolkatta-based Centre for Agricultural Economics (CAPE).
The state also plans to buy more land from private landowners to increase farm income.
But it says the plan will not be a solution for a country where a farmer can earn Rs. 1 lakh a month, but a farmer in Bihar can earn only Rs. 2,000.
The drought has hurt India’s agricultural sector, but the government is also trying to get its farmers to produce more.
In Karnataka, a state that is the third largest producer of fruits and vegetables, the government has been investing heavily in its agriculture sector, creating more than 60,000 new jobs in the past year alone.
The current crop-rebuilding plan, by contrast, has yet to go into effect.
The Government of India has said that there is still time to meet the needs of the farmers.
It has also said it would work with the government of the day to ensure farmers have a full harvest in the new year.
But in a country with such a big shortage of food, there is no way of knowing how much time will elapse before food production improves.
