In an agrarian economy like India, farmersÂ play a major role in agricultural production. In India,Â more than 65 per cent of the people depend onÂ agriculture to earn their livelihood. In order to augmentÂ agriculture and to help the farmers, many policiesÂ were evolved over years and they get reflected in theÂ successive Five Year Plans. However, the small andÂ marginal farmers and the landless agricultural labourÂ have been facing problems due to significant changesÂ in production system. A farmer is always under stressÂ and has to struggle for inputs, resources, credit and
market support price. In sense, farmers andÂ agriculture always continue to be in the grip of crisis.
