Why, despite the implementation of green revolution, 65 percent of india’s population continued to be engaged in the agriculture sector till 1990?


After the Green Revolution the Indian agricultural production increased substantially and made India Self-reliant  in terms of food grains but the increase was limited to wheat and rice. These crops were produced in few states of India and so the farmers of other state started looking job in manufacturing and service sector but the economy was not ready to absorb this wider section of community so the major part of the population was forced to remain dependent upon agriculture because the manufacturing and service sector were facing slow growth and this is the reason due to which 65% of our population continued to be engaged in agriculture even after green revolution till 1990.
