About 65 percent of the country’s business depends on agriculture. That is why the Modi government has initiated many new schemes for agricultural farmers and its development in the last four years. Production and productivity in agricultural sector have increased during the four years of NDA rule at the Centre and the country is made self reliant. Let us take a look at the steps taken by the central government.

— for proper compensation for the crops which are destroyed by the soil health plan.

— Neem coating of urea has begun to stop the leakages in supply of urea to the grey market, which has reduced the cost and increased production. 

— All the mandis of the country were added by creating e-NAM portal under the National Agricultural Market, so that farmers can decide to sell their prodice at the best price available.

— Now the government’s goal is to double the income of farmers of the country by 2022.

The emphasis of the government is to provide adequate technical support to the farmers for better production of the crop and to provide one and a half times the cost of them. Overall, the government is constantly trying to empower farmers. The PM’s interaction will help him get first hand information from the farmers about what more needs to be done for their growth and increased productivity.
