Food is an essential item for the survival of human being. Food insecurity led to poverty, hunger and famine.
The ‘seed fertiliser water strategy’ is the basis for Green Revolution. It has ensured self-sufficiency in food grain production during the last 30 years. The use of high yielding, disease and drought resistant seeds increases the production and productivity of the crop.
Similarly, use of fertiliser and better irrigation facility ensure maximum yield per acre age of cultivation.
The high food grain production not only make country self-sufficient but also ensures availability, accessibility and affordability issues related to food. So, in this way the ‘seed fertiliser water strategy’ helps in ensuring food security.
