Around 60% of the working population of the state is annually deployed on agriculture, which has traditionally been a subsistence profession in Mizoram. It is a means for generating food for one's family, ignoring its potential for commerce, growth and prosperity. To improve the farm economy in this state, crops like citronella and lemongrass, which can generate a profit of about Rs. 1 lakh per hectare annually, were introduced in a small area which would become a source of planting material in the coming years. Also, an awareness-cum-training programme was organized in which was attended by 71 farmers.
