Abstract:

Agriculture is the back bone of India and a majority of Indians depend on agriculture for their livelihood. Major challenges confronting Indian agriculture include declining total productivity, diminishing and degrading natural resources, a rapidly growing demand for food, stagnating farm incomes, fragmented land holdings and unprecedented climate change. Indian farmers are not getting expected income from agriculture due to many problems relating to pest and disease, pesticides, fertilizer, processing etc. Technology adoption modernizes farmers’ production practices and leads to uniform annual returns for farmers, reduced risk of crop failure, and increased yields. Like the concept of ‘Digital Earth’, digitalization in agriculture is the combination of ICT and data ecosystems to support the agricultural development. This paper is an attempt to get an insight into the problems faced by the farmers, the concept of digitalisation and the ways in which digitalization process is helping them to overcome the same.
