AGRICULTURE IN INDIA
Facing a Crisis
Extractive agriculture is taking its toll. Soil degradation, groundwater depletion, increasing input costs, and reducing income add to the pressure. Household debt and farmer suicides rise year after year.
Small farmers can have transformative global impact by building social capital, finding micro solutions for complex global crises such as climate change, and creating local economic wealth in depressed rural economies.
