Explain the technological and institutional reforms introduced by the government to improve the agricultural production in India.. Ans = In the 1980 s and 1990 s a comprehensive land development programme was initiated, which included both institutional and technical reforms Technological reforms :- Highyielding and early maturing seeds are developed. They are now being increasingly used to raise productivity. Chemical fertilizers are being used on a large scale to increases farm yields and productivity. They are now being supplemented by bio fertilizers which greatly add to the fertility of the soil. Irrigation methods- the flooding of water is now being replaced by drip- irrigation and the use of sprinklers. The water pump replaced the Persian wheel, the plough by tiller and harrow drawn by the tractor, the bullock cart by truck Institutional reforms :- LAND REFORMS it was the main focus of our first five year plan. The right of inheritance had already lead to fragmentation of land holidays necessitating consolidation of land holdings.

13 a) Consolidation of land holiding - the government took the step of promoting consolidation of small and scattered holdings through chakbandi. The larger plots have become economically more productive. They save farmer s time, money and energy. b) Abolition of zamindari zamindari system was abolished. Farmers became land owners. Earlier cultivated land was owned by the zamindars who themselves did not cultivate the land, instead they exploited the actual cultivators. On becoming the owners of the land, the peasants took cultivation seriously. Agriculture production started increasing. Provision for crop insurance provision for crop insurance against drought, flood, cyclone, fire, and disease was another step to provide protection to the farmers against losses caused by these calamities. Loan facilities grameen banks, cooperative societies and banks for providing loan facilities to the farmers at lower rates of interest were some important steps in this direction. Special bulletins and agricultural programme special weather bulletins and agricultural programme for farmers were introduced on the radio and TV. Minimum support price the government also announces minimum support price, remunerative and procurement prices for important crops to check the exploitation of farmers by speculators and middle men. OTHER SCHEMES kisan credit card, personal accident insurance scheme are some other schemes introduced by the government of India for the benefit of farmers. Q 27.)

14 Q28.) Why are farmers in India withdrawing their investment from agriculture? Ans- Farmers are withdrawing their investment from agriculture for the following reasons:- Today, Indian farmers are facing a big challenge from international competition Our government is going ahead with reduction in the public investment in agriculture sector particularly in irrigation, power, rural roads, market and mechanization. Subsidy on fertilizer is decreased leading to increase in the cost of production. Moreover, reduction in import duties on agriculture products have proved detrimental to agriculture in the country. Q29.) Write short note on horticulture. Ans- India is the largest producer of fruits and vegetables in the world. India is a producer of tropical as well as temperate fruits. India is well known for:- Mangoes of Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal. Oranges of kerela,mizoram, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu. Lichi and guava of Utter Pradesh and Bihar.
