It has been very common to hear farmers committing suicide, Government announcing various failure schemes, finding other data as reason for these suicides. The cycle is repeating itself sucessfully and many families are getting wiped out.
Why is the Government not pulling these farmers out and move them into next level of opportunites? Why is it that more than 40% of our people are still in agriculture? World wide hardly 1% of its population using mechanised forms feed the rest of the country.
Its quite a well known fact that for agriculture to be a success it has to be practiced on vast tracts of land [ Yes, i know isolated incidents of small farmers]. Why doesnt the farmer move up the scale and earn more money – look at USA.
Yes, we are not USA but whats wrong in a farmers son / daughter getting educated as he moves up the chain?
