Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
the history of Indian society is built on the combined aspects of hunting, gathering and the cultivation of maize and other products for their food supplies. but as time progresses the population in the society began increasing therefore land became scarce for hunting because of the competition between man and animals. therefore, the Indian society had to switch to agricultural activities with the availability of water from river kaveri enabled agriculture to flourish in India.
since, agriculture was far from the dominant mode of support for human societies. But those who adopted it, have survived and increased, and passed their techniques of production to the next generation. hence, the advancement from one generation to another brought up new methods of agriculture and expanded the indian market on agriculture.
