The plan size has been agreed at Rs.2500 crore.

So far the state has preformed well with progress made in agriculture.

It was pointed-out that irrigation coverage of net sown areas is found to be very low, which needs to be accelerated. Bench terracing may be a viable alternative towards water management under agriculture enhancement strategy.

There is also a need to develop a Horticulture Hub in the State to revamp the sector.

The animal husbandry, veterinary, dairy and fisheries/aquaculture sectors may be promoted through self help groups.
