According to the World Bank, in 1991, around 38.75% of the total land was dedicated to agriculture production. This, however, was reduced to 36.90% in 2018. In addition, a falling trend in agricultural production has been observed. According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the government's agricultural support has been reduced over the past few years. In 2009, OECD countries received 20.81% of gross farm receipts. This came down to 18.07% in the year 2020. The Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on the Agricultural Packaging Market:
