Yes. Unless there is irrigation and continuous supply of water is assured, there is no guarantee that the crops will be good. Sometimes there is too much rain causing floods and sometimes there is no rain at all. Hence, it is true and I accept that income from agricultural operations is uncertain.

A farmer's income is a function of several factors. Variables like the volume of output available for harvesting, the minimum support price fixed by the authorities, the inputs in the form of pesticides and HYV sees, and uch other imponderables go into the entire model of determing the total agricultural output of any given district or a village. Then the oputput itself is a function of such uncertain and unquantifiable factors like the total volume of rainfall, the irrigation facilities available to him, the availability of such essentials like electricity, and the like. All in all, the English statesman Mr. Basil Blackett had termed Indian agriculture as a ' gamble of the monsoons.' It is a sad commentary on the so-called "vision " and foresight of our leaders that even after 60 years of our independence, things have yet to improve on this front.

No. Not at all . Only in India farmers are pampered with free or subsidised land,water,seeds,fertilisers,insecticides,transport, storage , whole sale , retail outlets , crop insurance and total tax exemption. In all other countries agriculture is like any other work . Groups of farmers can start all these with their own money or with loans. How can one lose when one sells rice and sugar ?.
Indian farmers are neck deep in politics. All cabinet ministers of Andhra Pradesh own agricultural land and they don`t have to account for their incomes
