Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Indian Agriculture
The largest employment in India, agriculture and related sectors, remained to be spared the worst effects of the COVID-19 epidemic and is expected to rise by 3.9% in 2021–2022 as opposed to 3.6 per cent in 2020–21. There is a long-term trend for the sector’s share of the economy’s total GVA to be approximately 18 percent. However, the agriculture and related sector percentage of the overall GVA increased to 20.2 per cent in 2020–21 and 18.8 per cent in 2021–22. The current fiscal year, which ends in March 2022, is predicted to see growth in the Indian agriculture sector of 3.5 per cent. This industry was one of the few to remain resilient during the pandemic storms.
