World needs to elevate 700 million poor people living in rural area. Sustainable Development Goal emphasizes ending poverty and hunger by 2030 and the importance of agriculture in the economy, employment, food security, national self-reliance, and general well-being. Reliable information related to agriculture is at the center of everything and agricultural statistics are part of the economic profile of a village/taluk/district/state and country and are increasingly becoming important. Agriculture data includes agricultural holding by distribution, size, tenure, land use, means of production, and labor force and statistics are essential to monitor trends and estimate future prospects for agricultural commodity markets which can assist in setting policies such as price supports and strategies to promote economic growth.
