Our country is an agricultural country. Our farmers show less interest in farming because the overhead cost of farming is more than the value of their farm produce. Most of the farm lands particularly in Odisha are either lying barren or plotted for residential purposes without any out put due to lack of proper irrigation including bore-well, illiteracy, lack of manpower(laborers) in rural areas due to vote bank policies like Rs.2 per kg rice, Rs.5 per meal etc., menace of pigs, monkeys etc., lack of proper training to farmers(other than statistics), lack of proper marketing of agricultural produce, non-adoption of techniques of modern farming like Israel, less subsidy to farmers on electricity, manure, fertilizers, seeds and agricultural equipment. Both the Central and State Govts. should look into the matter and ensure actual development of the farmers through pro farmer policies and see that the policies are actually reaching the farmers for their development. If agriculture is developed, then India is developed.
