Food security is a challenge for India. Food security has a great relation with agriculture. India is a net agricultural exporter, particularly of milk, fruits and vegetables, and cereals. However, food security is affected by climate change and declining water resources on agriculture output. Economic access to food by about a fourth of the population living below the poverty line is a very big problem in India, despite impressive economic growth in the recent years. Food security is assured by increasing agriculture productivity in India
