Answer :

In India, the huge population means a higher number of mouths to feed. But the scope for bringing in additional land under net sown area is limited. Thus, increasing cropping intensity is necessary in India.

The cropping intensity (CI) is calculated as follows:

Cropping intensity in percentage = (GCA/NSA) X 100

Moreover, increasing cropping intensity does not just increase output from limited land, it also increases the demand for labour. For a land scarce but labour abundant country like India, a high cropping intensity is desirable not only for fuller utilisation of land resource, but also for reducing unemployment in the rural economy.
