It is also said to be providing employment (directly and indirectly) to about 64 per cent of the total workforce in India. This can be the largest private enterprise in the Country. Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam, the Late President of India in his book "Target 3 Billion" observed that while Agriculture sector is by far the largest employer of human resources worldwide, it has the smallest sectoral contributor to the GDP of the nation.

Though the state economy no more remains primarily agrarian, but the sector bears enormous implications in development strategy of the State in each plan period as its net area under cultivation still covers 35 per cent of geographical area of Odisha and more than 62 per cent of States total worker's population depend on agriculture (Tripathy, 2016). So, it can be said that the development of the State is mainly dependent upon the growth in agriculture Sector.
