FACTORS CONTRIBUTED FOR DECLINE IN THE ECONOMY OF THE FARMERS

  • Escalation in cost of production resulting reduced profit margin
  • Inadequate information support system
  • Decline in soil fertility and productivity
  • Inadequate market facility and lack of scientific price for produce
  • Depletion of ground water and environmental degradation
  • Division and fragmentation of land holdings
  • Unorganized farming sector

Leading to apathy, loosing interest among farmers particularly present day rural youth in farming and migration to urban areas –

in extreme cases suicide

CONCLUSION

  • The model has the special feature of intensification of small farmers through IFSD approach and ensures end-to-end approach without leaving any issues for chance factor.
  • The chances of success of improving productivity and income are certain in the process of sustainable development of small farmers.
  • Hence the RBRC model evolved and tested could be replicated or scaled up across the country with some modifications or refinements to suit different agro-ecological situations with varied resource base of the farmers.
