While the strength lies in having the largest cultivable land with record food grains production, our weakness lies in having low yields, less value addition and food processing and large amount of post harvest losses. The paper also dwells upon where the opportunities exist and how the opportunities can be further strengthened to augment the yield and income of the farming community the agriculture sector
