India - rich agriculture: poor farmers

India - rich agriculture: poor farmers This book proposes to present design of income policy for farmers suiting India's over populated rural sector. The profile of the farms and the farmers is presented to understand the structure of the farm economy and type of farmers for whom the income policy is designed. It also looks into the present income level of the farmers and limitations of the data in this respect. Sheer number of farmers producing different commodities is so large that it is a complicated task to have a homogenous one track policy. The main limitation in India's agriculture to increase farmers' income is small size of farm. The partnership farming through an incentive mechanism can bring small and large farmers together for commercial management of farms for increasing farmers' income. An income policy for farmers is designed keeping in view the financial constraints.
