KisanMarket--Online Agriculture Marketing
The main difference between the traditional agricultural practices of India and modern agricultural practices of the world stems from the inherent nature and outlook towards farming. Traditional farming involves methods that include labour for tilling, sowing and harvesting. Irrigation is majorly dependent on rain and seeds used are not modern. Modern agricultural practices use mechanised equipment for irrigation, tilling and harvesting along with hybrid seeds. In India, the agriculture technology are labour intensive, whereas the modern agriculture technology are mainly capital intensive. The agricultural land in India is small and disconnected in the ownership of individuals making mechanization difficult. On the other hand land for modern agriculture is being consolidated into one large farm. This led to easy access for mechanised equipment and use of hybrid seeds for increased productivity and disease resistance. The subsidies for modern agriculture technology are far more than traditional farming technologies. Modern agriculture gains from subsidies on energy, irrigation, seeds and fertilizers.
