Agriculture and animal husbandry in India began from the beginning of the Vedic period, and during the subsequent centuries in the pre-historic and historic period developed to a degree of skill rarely known in other parts of the world. The ancient Vedic Rishis invented such beautiful sciences like those of agriculture and cattle breeding, both interdependent on one another, and both rooted in the practical spiritual outlook of the one God residing in all beings and becomings, in everything from the galaxies to the nucleus of the sub-sub-atom, animate and inanimate.

Agriculture, animal husbandry, hand-spun cloth, pancampta and pañcagavya were there most perfect scientific inventions in tune with unified field of life, of man in relation to its environment both sentient and insentient. Tree planting and preservation was one of the fundamental articles of Hindu religion, for the Indian culture from its inception grew under the shades of trees in the hermitages of the sages. Even in the medieval period under the Hindu rulers, we find ample contemporary evidence for testifying to the expert skill in raising crops and in rearing of fruits. And the farmers only paid about 8% to 16% of their agriculture products to the state by way of general tax. Things, however, changed with the establishment of the Turkish rule, since exploitation of farmer was deemed necessary for stability of their empire, and the State used to collect half of the earnings of the farmers. Naturally, the status of the farmer suffered and his skill came to be restricted to traditional methods.
