The Ganges Basin with its fertile soil is instrumental to the agricultural economies of India and Bangladesh. The river and its tributaries provide a perennial source of irrigation to a large area. Chief crops cultivated along the river include rice, sugarcane, lentils, oil seeds, potatoes, and wheat. Along the banks of the river, the presence of swamps and lakes provide a rich growing area for crops such as legumes, chillies, mustard, sesame, sugarcane, and jute. Fishing also provides opportunities to many along the river, though the river remains highly polluted. Tourism is another related activity.
