How can small and marginal farmer be emancipated from their profession.
I have gone through the points you raised. It is true that Farming community facing lot more problems then those you mentioned.
All we must keep in mind that every one his builder of his own fate.
Farming cummunity is essential creators who are providing food for remaining all other non agriculturists. Any one can live without anything but, no one from begger to bill gates can live without food.
Present situation for agriculture is due to selfish human made efferts against the nature resulted in present disaster situation.
However, small Farmers can do samrt wonders subject to he adhering to true principles of
- Art of growing crop- Their are lot more traditional knowledge is available to grow the crop which is abandoned in the name of modern agri technology. Remember our ancestors grown very healthy crops during their tenure, have we adopted such unique techniques?
- Science of knowing disease of crop- Earlier our elderly people had very indigenous knowledge to raise the crops in such a way of resisting any possible threats. Have we retained & cultivating those traditional techniques. Hope No.
- Expertise to sell his product at his terms- A Farmer should be like a businessman to showcase his product and sell it on his terms.
A knowledgeable Farmer can do it now.
Honour the five forces of the nature Earth,Water, Fire, Air & Sky and justify through their acts and deeds first according to the nature.
Grow, healthy produce, give it to some on to taste & compare it with the same grown on other methods, then decide them to choose either they wants your produce or other. If they wanted your product, then they must accept your terms to sell at rate fixed by you my brother Farmer.
Nothing is prevented Farmer to learn knowledge either from elderly people in their surroundings or from all formats of media even learn from farming achievers around them is the essential first to rule in his terms is next.
