Factors like the inadequate supply of agricultural credits, limited supply of irrigational facilities, fertilizers and slow farm mechanization are mainly responsible for the poor performance and development of Agriculture in the  BTAD.

The present study has explored the main causes of concern for agricultural development in the North-East India and of BTC in particular.
