Good morning everyone present here, today I am going to give a speech on farmers. India’s backbone is farmers who put a lot of effort into providing meals for everyone in the country throughout their life. Despite the fact that they save our lives, they receive virtually little compensation for their work. The little profit a farmer makes is one of the key causes of this devaluation. People who place a high emphasis on money have not yet realized the actual worth of a farmer.
Agriculture has provided 20% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) share, according to the Economic Survey 2020–21. The majority of people living in India eat foods made of wheat and rice. As a result, the vast majority of Indian farmers are involved in the enormous production of rice, wheat, and spices. Indian farmers also engage in the production of cotton, sugarcane, tea, dairy, sheep and goat meat, fishery, poultry, and other agricultural products in addition to these.
India is the world’s second-biggest producer of fruits and vegetables and the world’s largest producer of milk, accounting for 22% of worldwide production. In India, farming is never a simple endeavor. To get the best possible yield, farmers need to be well knowledgeable about soil types, climatic fluctuations, air conditions, and other factors.
In order to meet the demands of an expanding population with rising incomes, India’s food security is heavily dependent on the production of cereal crops, fruits, vegetables, and milk. A competitive production using sustainable agricultural methods must be put into place to satisfy such demands. Thank you.
