The place where I live in agriculture forms an important occupation. The problems people face in the agricultural sector are as follows:
• Machines and the agricultural equipment are expensive. It becomes difficult for the people to acquire such expensive machines.
• The tertiary sector is not developed in areas where agriculture is prominent.
• Availability of banks in such areas makes it difficult for the farmers to acquire the loan. Thus, they are mostly depended on the landlords and merchants for money. This, in turn, makes their life miserable as the interest is high. Farmers in many states even commit suicide due to this reason.
• Lack of knowledge about the use of chemical products, machines, and how to do farming to increase production turns out to be the biggest challenge for the people engaged in agriculture.
• Agriculture is dependent on weather conditions. Climatic changes greatly affect agriculture in India. Lack of information about the climate changes often led to the loss of agricultural production.
Areas, where agriculture is prominent technological development, has not taken place. Agricultural products are not easily available in such areas and lack of irrigation facilities often becomes a problem for farmers.
