Tamilnadu Agriculture Developments


Tamil Nadu has historically been an agricultural state, while its advances in other fields launched the state into competition with other areas. Even so, Tamil Nadu is a leading producer of agricultural products in India. Tamil Nadu agriculture is heavily dependent on the river water and Monsoon rains. The perennial rivers are Palar, Cheyyar, Ponnaiyar, Kaveri, Meyar, Bhavani, Amaravati, Vaigai, Chittar & Tamaraparani. Non-perennial rivers include the Vellar, Noyal, Suruli, Gundar, Vaipar, Valparai and Varshali. Tamil Nadu is also the leading producer of kambu, corn, rye, ground nuts, oil, seeds and sugar cane in India.

At present Tamil Nadu is India's second biggest producer of rice. Tamil Nadu is the home to Dr. M.S. Swaminathan, known as the "father of the Green Revolution" in India. The town of Namakkal is also known as the Poultry hub of India.

A technological and industrial park was originally planned to be set up in Nanguneri, in the Tirunelveli district with an investment of Rs. 6,000 crores. However, recently developmental plans point to a re-orientation of this project to Tuticorin.
