Updated: May 15

Authored by: Jitendra Bisht


Given the nature of agriculture today, and its impact on soil health, water availability, and livelihoods across the world, the question of sustainability has taken centre-stage in agricultural practice and policy-making.


This issue brief looks at sustainability concerns in Indian agriculture from three standpoints - the ecological impact of agricultural practices, farmer incomes, and impact of climate change on yields.

SPRF is registered as a public charitable trust in New Delhi, India.
