Population Growth and its Impact on Agriculture in India: A Geographical Perspective

Authors(3) :-Dr. Sneh Sangwan, Dr. Balwan Singh, Ms. Mahima

The present study has described that India occupies 2.4 per cent of the world’s land area and supports over 17.5 per cent of the world’s population. India has more arable land area than any country except the United States, and more water area than any country except Canada and the United States. Indian life, therefore, revolves mostly around agriculture and allied activities in small villages, where the overwhelming majority of the population live.
