Banks which provide low interest agriculture loans

Sustainable agriculture is a type of agriculture that focuses on producing long-term crops and livestock while having minimal effects on the environment. This type of agriculture tries to find a good balance between the need for food production and the preservation of the ecological system within the environment.@@ In addition to producing food, there are several overall goals associated with sustainable agriculture, including conserving water, reducing the use of fertilizers and pesticides, and promoting biodiversity in crops grown and the ecosystem. Sustainable agriculture also focuses on maintaining economic stability of farms and helping farmers improve their techniques and quality of life. Sustainable agriculture has also had positive impacts of the environment. One major benefit to the environment is that sustainable agriculture uses 30% less energy per unit of crop yield.@@ Organic farming, agricultural system that uses ecologically based pest controls and biological fertilizers derived largely from animal and plant wastes and nitrogen-fixing cover crops. Modern organic farming was developed as a response to the environmental harm caused by the use of chemical pesticides and synthetic fertilizers in conventional agriculture, and it has numerous ecological benefits.@@ Organic agriculture is a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of inputs with adverse effects. Soils are a non-renewable resource on which 95% of our food supply depends.@@ Nature Farming is a farming practice, which believes in natural growth of crops without adding any fertilizers and pesticides or any other foreign elements. It requires almost no monetary investment, and chemicals are replaced with biological pesticides like cow dung, cow urine, jaggery and pulse flour for crop protection.@@ Agricultural research system has contributed in a large way to increasing agriculture production and productivity. Development of high yielding and disease resistant varieties has been its major hallmark. The country has one of the largest Public Agricultural Research Establishments in the world. With Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) at the top, we have 30 State Agriculture Universities, 46 Institutes including 4 Deemed Universities, 4 National Bureau, 9 Project Directorates, 31 National Research Centers, 158 Regional Stations and 80 All India Coordinated Research Projects. However, despite having such a huge manpower and infrastructure, the predominant critique has been that it is very weak in transfer of technology and does not benefit small farmers.

Technology that Will Change Agriculture in 2019

Agriculture Information: Total geographical area in India, under agriculture was 328.73 million hectares in 2010-11. Land under cultivation from total agriculture land was about 141.58 million hectares. Other uncultivated area including uncultivable waste land is 26.17 million hectares. Agriculture land that is not available for cultivation was 34% in 1950-51. We can see decrease in this figure as Agriculture land not available for cultivation was 23% in 2010-11.@@ Precision agriculture (PA) is an approach to farm management that uses information technology (IT) to ensure that the crops and soil receive exactly what they need for optimum health and productivity. The goal of PA is to ensure profitability, sustainability and protection of the environment.@@ Agriculture in India has an extensive background which goes back to ten thousand years. At present, India holds the second position in the world in agricultural production. It also contributes a major share in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the country. In addition, the sector recruits about 50% of the entire manpower. Agriculture in India: India's production of food grains has been increasing every year, and India is among the top producers of several crops such as wheat, rice, pulses, sugarcane and cotton. It is the highest producer of milk and second highest producer of fruits and vegetables.@@ Technological Changes in Agriculture Multiple cropping, fertilizers, pesticides, high yielding variety seeds are such techniques. Suppose an individual possesses 5 hectares of land and he is cultivating paddy. It takes six months to harvest because it is a traditional variety of paddy. Now assume that the farmer adopts a High Yielding Variety, the duration of which is only three months, then he can cultivate twice and the area cultivated by the individual increases to 10 hectares. Thus, the biological, chemical and technical changes introduced in agriculture are referred as land-augmenting technological change.@@
