The PMEAC's projection of 8.6% growth is in line with government estimates released earlier this month.
According to PMEAC, the agriculture sector is expected to grow at 5.4% this fiscal. This is higher than the 0.4% rate of growth registered by the farm sector in 2009-10.
"Agriculture will do very well this year. We might have record harvest of wheat," PMEAC chairman C Rangarajan said here.

The PMEAC further said the overall inflation is expected to be at 7% by March-end and that the rate of price rise in the case of manufactured goods has been low.
"The declining trend in food prices, particularly that of vegetables, will result in lower food inflation...
Considerable care from the policy side has to be taken to ensure that the manufactured goods inflation remains below 5% in 2011-12," it said.
The overall inflation for January has been at 8.23%, while food inflation was at 11.05% in the first week of February.
