Land Economy: Sustainability in Agriculture Sector
Dr. Deepak Jain and Dr. PS Subhaprada
According to the Census Bureau, about 70% of Indians live in rural areas. As a result, people living in rural areas face a variety of problems. In recent years, the role of agriculture in the economy has diminished. Former farmers are now considering selling the land to industrialists because they feel that the money, they earn from farming is not enough to support their families. This problem can be addressed by providing farmers with incentives such as subsidies, and minimum prices for crops. To increase their income, some have turned to other farming methods. The result will be significant advances in agricultural technology. This led to the belief that agriculture was profitable.
