  3. 3. Recently in 2007-08, NABARD has started a new direct lending facility under 'Umbrella Programme for Natural Resource Management' (UPNRM). Under this facility financial support for natural resource management activities can be provided as a loan at reasonable rate of interest. Already 35 projects have been sanctioned involving loan amount of about Rs 1000 crore. The sanctioned projects include honey collection by tribes in Maharashtra, tussar value chain by a women producer company ('MASUTA'), eco-tourism in Karnataka[ National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development
  4. 4. •The Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) was established by the Government of India under the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority Act passed by the Parliament in December, 1985. • The Act (2 of 1986) came into effect from 13th February, 1986 by a notification issued in the Gazette of India: Extraordinary: Part-II [Sec. 3(ii): 13.2.1986). The Authority replaced the Processed Food Export Promotion Council (PFEPC). •Development of industries relating to the scheduled products for export by way of providing financial assistance or otherwise for undertaking surveys and feasibility studies, participation in enquiry capital through joint ventures and other reliefs and subsidy schemes; •Fixing of standards and specifications for the scheduled products for the purpose of exports; •Carrying out inspection of meat and meat products in slaughter houses, processing plants, storage premises, conveyances or other places where such products are kept or handled for the purpose of ensuring the quality of such products; •Improving of packaging of the Scheduled products;
  5. 5. PROBLEMS FACED BY INDIAN AGRICULTURE 1. Poor productivity 2. Falling water levels. 3. Expensive credit. 4. A distorted market. 5. Many intermediaries who increase cost but do not add much value. 6. Laws that stifle private investment. 7. Controlled prices. 8. Poor infrastructure. 9. Produce that does not meet international standards. 10. Inappropriate research. 11. Tax evasion by unorganised sector leading to the lack of a level playing field.
  6. 6. New schemes in India for farmers  Giving loans to farmers with low interest and long time period.  Providing Government shops where the grains and fertilizers are given in less prices.  By using HYV seeds and proper fertilizers we can boost agriculture.  By strip cropping and various another methods of farming we can maintain the Richness of soil.  Government has launched help centres and online website 24X7 service for Farmers help.
  7. 7. IMPROVEMENT OF AGRICULTURE CAN BE DONE BY IMPLEMENTING MODERN AGRICULTURE.
  8. 8. Modern ways of agriculture Improving the distribution of agricultural products: Distribution systems are extremely unequal in most tropical countries, and often unreliable. Access to food and other agricultural goods must be increased in terms both of availability (delivery) and affordability. Reduction of the environmental impacts of new technologies: To diminish environmental impacts, agricultural management systems must be devised which are suitable for specific areas and crops. This would allow reduction in artificial inputs, so that fertilizer and pesticide use could be considerably reduced.
  9. 9. Development of agro-forestry projects: Cash crops might be raised in small-scale agro-forestry plots. Such crops as avocados, papayas, peppers, palm fruits, mangos Papaya tree Avocado tree
  10. 10. 1) Give States an incentive to amend the APMC act and abolish mandi taxes. This would allow competitive markets to develop; farmers and processors will both gain. 2) Support the organised private sector in increasing its spending on extension and technology transfer. This would give farmers the knowledge of what to grow, and how to grow so that stringent quality norms are met. 3) Implement the Unified Food Law, and back it up with lowering the total tax burden on processed foods so that the sector picks up, and consequently demand for farm produce rises. 4) Target foreign buyers of high-value ethnic Indian foods, as opposed to commodity exports-starting with the large NRI population of 20 million, which can be a huge market. 5) Create a viable model of public-private partnership that allows private investors to invest in agriculture infrastructure in partnership with banks and financial institutions.
  11. 11. WHAT TO DO Private sector participation Give the price of his produce to the farmers Transparent system ADVANTAGES There should be increased participation by the Private sector, which will increase in investments, from the 5year plan there is allotment of 6 lakh crores which means per year around 1.2 lakh crore is alloted but then government was able to raise only 79,000 crore so there is shortage and this 79,000 crores is divided into two like 22,000 crores has come from Public sector and the remaining from Private sector. so there is need of even more private sector participation in this regard, if that happens then one can make sure that Agriculture is on the right path in the country. If that happens every farmer will be benifited and there will be no suicides.besides he shows more interest in agriculture instead of going to other sectors. Due to lack of transparency farmers are not aware of the agricultural system.this results in rising up of the word CORRUPTION.so if farmers are aware this can be avoided a lot.
  12. 12. It has to be understood that the life of a farmer goes beyond tilling and yielding crops. Their standard of living has to be uplifted by small scale industries set up which will increase their income. Other facilities like shelter, drainage system, education and alternative employment will secure their future. The change is accepted well by farmers as India still believes in the phrase, “Jai Jawan Jai Kisan”. CONCLUSION:
