Editorial

Read the distress signals

Note the points

  2. Subsidies given to farming sector are failing to reach actual beneficiary.

  3. The biggest concern for India is to reduce the burden on agriculture.

  4. Rising MSP can decrease necessary incentive for crop diversification for farmer.

  5. Loan waivers are bad economics.

In india, agriculture suffers from under employment and low productivity. Small land holdings and higher dependance on the agriculture are the reasons. It is leading to under employment and livelihood concerns.

so, making agriculture a market based enterprise, to create opportunities outside farming, to connect farmers to the value chain from farm to fork, to remove restrictions on the export of farm produce, easier land transfers like leasing, encouraging crop diversification and land consolidation that reverses fragmentation are essential.

 

Govt of India need to be applauded for various steps it took.

  1. neem coated urea

  2. Direct benefit transfer

  3. Soil cards

  4. Giving tax holiday to farm producer organisations. etc.
