Agriculture and agriculturists are the basic pillars essential for not just the nation, but the whole world. Hence always agriculture and agriculturists are given certain preferences and concessions. Agriculture cannot be treated like a manufacturing industry. Farmers should be ensured sufficient profit reckoning the input costs and their own labour. The marginal and small framers incur losses many times due to the insufficient prices for their harvests or due to crop losses by adverse weather ad calamities.
In such cases they may no be able to repay the loans taken. At those times they need support from the society and nation. Such things were already in place. Then why they are not properly handled or implemented?
If genuine farmers incur regular losses,they get disenchanted , desperate and will lose interest in cultivation. Their helpless situation will be exploited by vested interests very cleverly. Govt and people should be vigilant against this. Many times keeping the small farmers in front the large farmers and rich get their things done leaving the small to their fate.
The proper and best way is to redress the grievances at the very first instance of knowing that.
