India’s agriculture” a bank in debt. Its more than a month now, i saw laborers working in the farm, planting paddy saplings. Are we planting the right seeds or as the title says, “miracle rice” which will bring miracle for the farmers? Last year, Food Corporation of India refused to pick up stocks of paddy from the mandis because of poor quality of grain which didn’t meet the required standards. It’s not only with Punjab but the situation is worst in many other states of India. Several revolutions have taken place to destress the farmer from the burden of debt, which he has to bear while raising the crop. We still are unable to fix agriculture problems of soil erosion, water shortage and ecological imbalance. Genetic diversity is the basic principle of traditional agriculture and hence, we have crops with narrow genetic base. Because of narrow genetic base, high yielding varieties are more vulnerable to major pests thus, increasing use of fertilizers and pesticides leading to an overall increase in debt. Inclusive of all above, Punjab’s agriculture sector is facing many other problems starting off with; high cost of transmigrated labor, suicides due to higher financial debt, lesser younger youth opting farming as a career option & higher commercialization of land. If the current situation is not fixed soon most of us will be eating imports.
