The decline is mainly ascribed to distraction of cultivable land for non-agricultural purposes, including construction, industries, and other development activities. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has expressed his concerns over shrinking of land resources because of the fragmentation of land. He further said that the Kisan Channel should act as an open university for farmers in terms of guidance and proper knowledge for better agricultural techniques.
