Undoubtedly! Indian agriculture has been a way of life and continues to be the single most important livelihood of the masses. The sector occupies almost 43 percent of India°«s geographical area. But unfortunately, inspite of being the most important sector of the country in the terms of employment generation, its percentage share has been declining gradually in the country°«s GDP with the passing of years which is a cause of serious concern. Current agricultural practices are neither economically nor environmentally sustainable and India's yields for many agricultural commodities are low. The present paper analyzes the problem of declining share of agricultural sector in country°«s GDP, its extent and causes. The paper also suggests various ways to improve the agricultural productivity.
