 Agriculture Department has been striving hard for increasing the production level of various crops including food crops. To achieve this objective the Agriculture Department is implementing a number of Centrally Sponsored Schemes (CSS) to incentivize farmers for adopting latest innovative technology to enhance the production. During past few years we have achieved remarkable success in enhancing the production level of some important crops like Paddy, Maize, Vegetables and Saffron thereby improving the economic condition of the farmers. However, there is yet lot more to be done to bring further improvement in the implementation of Agriculture Schemes to make the State self sufficient for this all stakeholders are required to join hands and remain connected.  Website of the agriculture department is a step in this direction which aims at to associate to all people like students, stake holders, Businessmen etc.  in this endeavor. I hope that the website of the Agriculture Department will prove beneficial for all and especially for the farming community.
