COVID-19's economic implications once again catapulted agriculture into the mainstream discourse. The reverse migration of labourers to India's hinterlands is having a differentiated impact across regions. While agricultural operations in the well-endowed regions are about to suffer, the hinterlands will have received an excess supply of labourers, throwing up new challenges and opportunities. In this context, it is worthwhile to revisit the role of agriculture in economic development to throw light into the policies the sector will need to adopt to recover better. This article talks about some of the impacts of lockdown within agriculture. The impacts of the economic slowdown on agriculture are also discussed.
