Abstract:

Food security is the most crucial as it hampers the development of the people as well as the nation. The global community often uses the term “food security” to describe not only the availability of food, but the ability to purchase food. Worldwide, 2.5 billion people derive their livelihoods from agricultural resources; 900 million poor people live in rural they directly depend on agriculture and related activities. Improving the productivity, profitability, and sustainability of smallholder farming using “agriculture for development” is the main pathway out of poverty, with innovation through science and technology being one of the key instruments (World Development Report, 2008). Research for development in agriculture and extension services has been a strong driving force for meeting food supply around the world as well as India. Increase in agricultural production through active involvement of small farmers and weaker sections of the society can empower the rural poor to earn their livelihood and improve their quality of life. Hence, agricultural development deserves priority for achieving the goal of food security in India. Positive outcomes can only be achieved when people access more and better food, as well as change their attitudes and practices towards improved nutritional food behavior. Stagnation in agricultural production has also been suppressing the employment opportunities in this sector. This has been affecting the income of the rural families and their capacity to purchase food. The objective of this study is to assess the link between food security and agricultural development in India.
