There is no one definition of ‘development’. It is generally taken to mean the growth of an individual, society, a nation, or entire world in terms of both economic and non-economic activities. Development has many connotations. It can be an end state, when we say we want development. It can be a process or activities through which certain goals are sought to be achieved. Development activities in agriculture are undertaken to improve production and create more jobs. When we talk of people’s participation in development, we refer to the process aspect of ‘development’
