ABSTRACT
Since 1991 every sectoral policy are being framed within the system of globalization and liberalization. Structural adjustment has now become an important policy matter of the Government. The implications are now being experienced by various segments of the society. Agriculture, as an important sector in India, is facing various challenges of globalization. Globalization is based on competition and to face competition, we are required to prepare ourselves. Knowledge, investment, incentives, information and internationalization of the farm attitudes are essentially developed for that.
