Agriculture plays a vital role in the Indian economy, as it provides employment to nearly 60% of the rural population. Although its contribution to the GDP is decreasing due to the growth of other sectors, it continues to be the primary occupation for the rural masses and is crucial for ensuring food and nutritional security in the country.

Despite the fact that farmers' income has not kept pace with other industrial sectors, the government has recently introduced several initiatives aimed at enhancing farmers' income.
