Milk: India's Number One Farm Commodity

Milk is India's number one farm commodity in terms of its contribution to the national economy. In 1994-95, the value of its output based on producer price was Rs. 500,051 millions, exceeding that from paddy (rice). Not withstanding its top place and the many benefits it bestows on the lower rungs of the rural society, dairying has not received due attention from planners, economists, social scientists and others. For example, the investment in dairying made under the five-year plans is not commensurate with its output. Consequently, its potential has not been adequately tapped.
