FARMING IN INDIA



Considering the area of India is one third the size of the United States, I find it interesting India ranks second to the United States in agricultural production.  Even more interesting is most of the farming in India is still done by hand and with the use of farm animals on small family plots versus large mechanized farming found in the United States.  I find myself more appreciative of the food that is on my table and for the hard work of the Indian farmer.
