Its primary interest is to compare the agricultural scenario of both Gujarat and India since 2000 because it has been asserted miracle performance of agriculture in Gujarat. There have been a structural shift of crops pattern form traditional to modern crops and production of cotton, rabi wheat, groundnut (commercial crops); fruits, vegetable and milk (high value products) grown rapidly.
