Diplomas in High Income Water Efficient Agriculture

Pandit Jagat Ram Agriculture Excellence Center: Agri Guru Series – Diplomas in High Income Water Efficient Agriculture

In 2016, over 8,000 farmers committed suicides. The root cause of this tragedy is the debt trap. With declining water availability and soil quality, farmers need to buy more fertilizers and make deeper borewells. This makes farming unprofitable. Sooner or later, they are forced to take loans to buy even these agricultural inputs. Year after year as this need continues and access to water declines, farmers get trapped in a never-ending cycle of more inputs and more loans – and despair sets in – leading to suicides.

It’s a tragedy that could be easily averted. Water efficient and income optimized agricultural planning holds the key. Today’s government support systems, financial products, mobile and internet technology tools and the market economy offer several alternatives that can make agriculture exciting and viable.
