Deesa has expanded significantly in recent times due to growth in the agricultural produce business of potatoes and other commodities. Many Rajput clans, like Gohil, Rathod, Raja, Galsar, etc., resided here after migration from Rajasthan. Deesa is both an agro and an industry-friendly city. It is well-known for its potato cultivation, for which it is a high producer.Considering the area under cultivation and the agro-climatic conditions for potato research, an All India Co-ordinated Potato Improvement Project was initiated in 1971–72 with the financial help of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), New Delhi.
Thereafter, ICAR realized the need for multidisciplinary long-range research to increase the production of this valuable crop and strengthened the project during the Fifth Five Year Plan (1975–80) to have systematic research work on potatoes started to overcome the farmers' problems in the state. Sardarkrushinagar, Dantiwada Agricultural University runs a potato research station in Deesa. It falls under the North Gujarat Agro Climatic Zone-IV of the State.
