Q.

Indian agriculture will benefit with the use of technology. When the average yield of rice per hectare in India is only around 3.5Tonnes and since we have harvested around 15 Tonnes of rice in a model farm, the upper most task of any government should be the optimum use of latest technology in agriculture and if we achieve atleast 50% of what we get in the model farm then we can become a highly developed nation even before 2020.comment

You are absolutely right. Agriculture is the most important economic activity considering the fact that we have to feed 125 crore people. As the land per farmer is considerably less in india, govt must put an organised structure in place to assist farmer without charging any money upfront. They may take service charges once the improvement in yield has been achieved.

First in any production economies of scale in agriculture & agro based industry
must be achieved atleast single farm of minimum 50 hectatre to be formed there after modern techinques eco friendly fertilizers effective utilisation of water
to protect from storms or flood one ca yield higher output ideal conditions to be created but not easy in India because different weather conditions plus water availability for irrigation in states it is to be designed as per local conditions for example in Maharashtra maximum irrigation is possible only upto 50% of land which is cultivable so it will be very expensive just excess yield should not be indicator land reclamation is another issue when we look for higher yield fertility of land to be maintained in every state land quality & technology that suits local situation then we can achieve higher production

I second your opinion. Technology should be given at an affordable cost to farmers through subsidies.
