Time the Indian farmer got his due
Published on : Thursday, February 21, 2008
Most Indian farmers are trapped in agriculture because their parents left them the land. A majority of the farmers would, given the choice, leave agriculture. On the other hand, there are other better endowed with finances, managerial skills and technological know-how that appear to be anxious to enter agriculture. The small holders generally come from families where the land gets divided between the siblings in each generation. Unfortunately, the Left economists do not suggest any way of operational consolidation but recommend further land reforms and fragmentation, writes Sharad Joshi

Finally, there is the 'no GM crops to be grown in India' demand, writes C Kameswara Rao

Published on : Tuesday, April 10, 2007
In Kerala’s once-acclaimed rice bowl, comrades are making sure farmers stick to the good old sickle just as their forefathers did, and avoid all modern “bourgeois farm machines”. The apparatchiks are also working on a detailed diktat specifying which individual farmer could sow and reap his crop when, from next year, writes Rajeev PI in the Indian Express.
