Apart from monsoon, farmers also play a vital role in enhancing India agriculture productivity. Most of the farmers are still unaware of the resources such as finance, new technology, and hybrid seeds that are available for them to improve the farm products productivity.

Some valuable resources available for Indian farmers to improve agri business productivity are listed below:

Financial support:

To assist the farmers financially, Indian government offers a wide range of financial support and relief benefits during natural calamities. Commercial banks, cooperative banks and regional rural banks offer financial support to ensure smooth flow of agricultural sector. Apart from this financial support, Rural Infrastructure Development Fund, Micro finance, insurance and other means of financial support are offered to assist the farmers financially.

They also offer details about hybrid seeds and other agricultural practices to improve the yield. SMS updates are also provided for farmers nowadays to assist them during modern agricultural practices.

Conducting workshop, seminars and conferences:
