Foodgrain production, which stood at 51 million tonnes in 1950-51, reached a level of 150.50 million tonnes in 1985-86. However, the per capita consumption today stands at only 424.4 gm against 468.7 gin 1961 and 468.8 gin 971. The technological change has broken the age-old stagnation of agriculture but the challenge of food and fibre for future generations remains unanswered. There exists tremendous scope for increasing yield and productivity of food grains. The main answer lies in unleashing an era of high yielding varieties of different crops and the availability of better and assured post-harvest facilities such as cleaning, drying, marketing and handling. It is estimated that about 10 percent of our food grains are lost every year due to the availability of poor post-harvest facilities with the farmers.
