The State has a huge forest cover amounting to almost 46% of the total land, which contributes to a very healthy and fertile state of soil for Agriculture. Due to Favorable climatic conditions and soil type, the state is considered to be a leading producer of Rice, Paddy, Jwar, Groundnut, Gram, Oilseeds and Wheat in the country.
Chhattisgarh has received Krishi Karman Award for producing highest Rice during 2010-11. And the state is famously known as Rice Bowl of India.
Chhattisgarh is known for its diverse agricultural practices. The state cultivates a wide range of crops, including rice, wheat, maize, pulses, oilseeds, sugarcane, cotton, and fruits like mangoes and oranges. This diversity helps in sustaining the agricultural sector and provides income opportunities for farmers.
Agriculture is the mainstay of the rural economy in Chhattisgarh. The majority of the state’s population is engaged in agricultural activities, either as farmers or agricultural laborers.
Horticulture is a significant part of agriculture industry in Chhattisgarh. Aromatic Plants, Flowers, and Medicinal Plants form the key component of horticulture in the state.
Chhattisgarh has also shown remarkable growth in accepting Animal Husbandry as their occupation. Along with increasing livestock, production of Dairy Products, Poultry, Wool and Aquaculture had shown remarkable growth.
Inspite of such positive scenarios, Agriculture, Animal Husbandry and Aquaculture contributed only 18% of GDP during 2009-10. Farm Mechanisation, Modernisation and adoption of Best Practices can further strengthen the complete Farming Industry contribution, in Chhattisgarh’s Economy.
