The economy of Telangana is mainly driven by agriculture. Two important rivers of India, the Godavari and Krishna, flow through the state, providing irrigation. Farmers in Telangana mainly depend on rain-fed water sources for irrigation. Rice is the major food crop. Other important crops are cotton, sugar cane, mango, and tobacco. Recently, crops used for vegetable oil production such as sunflower and peanuts have gained favour. There are many multi-state irrigation projects in development, including Godavari River Basin Irrigation Projects and Nagarjuna Sagar Dam, the world’s highest masonry dam.[74][75]



Several major manufacturing and services industries are in operation mainly around Hyderabad. Automobiles and auto components, spices, mines and minerals, textiles and apparels, pharmaceutical, horticulture, and poultry farming are the main industries in Telangana.[81]

In terms of services, Hyderabad is nicknamed “Cyberabad” due to the location of major software industries in the city.[82][83] Prior to secession, it contributed 10% to India’s and 98% to Andhra Pradesh’s exports in the IT and ITES sectors in 2013[84] With Hyderabad in the front line of Telangana’s goal to promote information technology in India, the city boasts the HITEC City as its premier hub.
