Abstract:
Farming plays an integral part in the Indian economy and its constituted state including Tripura. Tripura is the third-smallest state after Goa and Sikkim in the country with an area of 10, 491.69 sq. Km and is bounded on the north, west, south and southeast by Bangladesh, whereas in the east, it shares a common boundary with Assam and Mizoram. Various Agriculture development programmes in the state started from the 2nd Five Year Plan onwards although some preparatory efforts were initiated during the 1st Five Year Plan period. Before 1950, the developmental activities of Agriculture, Animal husbandry and Fisheries were being looked after centrally by Agriculture through a small set up headed by one Superintendent. Subsequently, Animal husbandry and Fisheries were separated from Agriculture. Agriculture is the backbone of Tripura’s Economy as it provides employment to nearly about 51% of the total workforce in the state. In recent times, efforts were made to develop low cost farming systems by adopting Integrated Farming System (IFS) suitable for Tripura conditions.
