Intensive Agriculture Area programme

Intensive Agriculture Area programme (IAAP) was launched in 1964-65. The core philosophy of the IAAP was that “much greater emphasis should be given to the development of scientific and progressive agriculture in an intensive manner in the areas which have High production potentials”. The idea was to cover at least 20% of the cultivated area of the country. The emphasis was on import crops such as Wheat, Rice, Millets, Cotton, Sugarcane, Potato, Pulses etc. The Intensive Agriculture Area programme (IAAP) paved the way for Green Revolution in the country.
