Agriculture NGO in India - Support a Farmer

An agriculture in NGO India, Hindrise Foundation is Empowering the Small and Marginal Farmers

Being an agriculture NGO in India, Hindrise Social Welfare Foundation is formulating strategies and working at a national level for the betterment and welfare of farmers and gives wings to sustainable rural development in the sphere of agriculture and allied industries. Since the slogan 'Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan' runs in the blood of team members at Hindrise Foundation, we have been striving hard to make the lives of farmers better than they have ever expected and become the voice for them.

The core working area of the Hindrise Social Welfare Foundation in the realm of agriculture is about uplifting the farmers' ability to make them perform all the tasks in their area by widening their zone of knowledge concerning all the activities that they are supposed to perform in the future course of time. Our experts will serve the farmers with the required knowledge that farmers must possess if they want to survive in modern times through training programs.

We are planning to conduct training and development programs for the country's farmers to make them familiar with the latest developed techniques by scientists so that they can utilize them and empower themselves and enhance their farming techniques. We will be proactively working with the objective of coming up with solutions for the challenges that farmers are facing nowadays in India.

Problems Encountered by Indian Farmers

The major section of the Indian population resides in rural areas of India. India is a country that is still going through its developing phase. Agriculture is the principal source of earning bread and butter in India.

Although India has reached the developing stage, there are not major changes visible in the lifestyle of Indian people, especially those living in rural regions, and there are no significant signs of possible changes in the future course of time. In India, the agriculture sector is a sector that is anyhow surviving and is offering no financial stability to our Indian farmers.

The significant problems encountered by Indian farmers are-


Lack of Proper Irrigation Facilities

Despite rising as the second-largest irrigated land in the entire world, the Indian agriculture sector and its associate people like farmers have to suffer a lot due to poor irrigation facilities. In order to grow the crops and let them flourish in a proper manner, it is vital to have adequate irrigation facilities. However, the sad part is that only one-third of India's overall land has appropriate irrigation facilities.

98% availability of land for conducting irrigation process in Punjab has established Punjab on the top in terms of having the highest percentage area of irrigated land throughout India's geographical boundaries. Haryana acquired the second position. The availability of sound irrigation facilities in Haryana, Punjab, or any other place is due to water availability via dams and rivers throughout the year. Thus, the timely execution of agricultural processes by the farmers is a reality in such places.

Central India has to face major hardships as rivers don't become water carriers all over the year. Just because of this reason, Indian farmers in central India have to rely on monsoon water for performing their irrigation work. We are well informed of the uncertainty that Monsoon carries along with it.

Shortfall of Storage Facilities

The dominance of local traders, along with farmers facing heat of exploitation becomes a common thing in the absence of market place. These middlemen's presence has become a matter of concern for farmers and the consumers as they are responsible for selling the crops at a too high price after buying it from farmers. The worst situation falls in poor farmers' lap since they have to sell their crops at whatever amount the other party is offering.

Scarcity of Modern Equipment on Board

We are in 2020, and still, most Indian farmers are using traditional tools and equipment for the agricultural operations and functions. Their traditional tools comprise sickle, plough, and more. It leads to wastage of the workforce as well as energy, and yield will be relatively less as compared to the output produced by modern tools and equipment concerning agriculture.

Two major reasons that don't allow a significant section of Indian farmers to use recently introduced modern tools and equipment are their lack of awareness and their inability to afford such tools and equipment. Hardly, they use machines in irrigation, harvesting, or even transportation. Unavailability of electricity facilities in rural or economically backward areas won't let farmers use the equipment even if they purchase modern tools and equipment.

Modernization of agricultural operations has become the need of the hour in our country. There are various schemes initiated by some of the state governments through which farmers can take modern equipment and tools on rent at a keenly-priced rate. They will be getting the machines without making the payment of the entire amount. It is nothing but the initiation of mechanizing agriculture in India. Now the requirement is to mechanize the overall agriculture structure to attain agricultural productivity to the fullest.

Lack of Quality Seeds Availability in the Market

There is unavailability of quality-rich seeds in the market. Even though some good quality seeds are available, they are too costly that marginal and poor farmers lack the financial power to get it. That's why a significant chunk of farmers’ population prefers to use the traditional seeds which are not the better performer in terms of being productive and yields fewer crops.

In India, a majority of certified seed manufacturers are private organizations. The government of India must join hands with these organizations or serve the farmers with direct subsidies so that they can make the best quality seeds available for production.
