The greatest challenge that farmers in India face today is that of severe water shortage. Large areas of land remain unproductive due to poor irrigation, soil erosion and general nutrient depletion, aggravating the problem of marginal farms in the villages. There is an urgent need to convert it into arable land, a source of employment and nourishment for the people.
Another factor which has contributed to the problems of farmers is Deforestation which has played a major role in a decrease in average rainfall.
The need of the hour is to help these farmers obtain financial assistance which can be used to construct wells for irrigation purposes. Also to ensure increased productivity and yield, farmers have to be given high yield seeds. Social forestry programs should also be encouraged to prevent Deforestation.
To ensure that these farmers and their families enjoy longer term economic benefits, your help is needed.
