Is the government doing too little to ease farmers' woes?

In view of the changing environmental scenario and the crisis situation as the fields parched up, should our farmers give up traditional farming practice and adopt new farming methods and technology, or should we wait on the government's action to address the alarming situation and for how long?

Changing rainfall patterns witnessed in recent years coupled with inadequate irrigation and other farming facilities is resulting in diminishing of agricultural land areas and wringing dry poor farmers in Manipur, who have no other source of income or livelihood other than cultivation of crops for self-sustenance.

In view of the changing environmental scenario and the mounting woes of the farmers in the state, should our farmers give up traditional farming practice and adopt new farming methods and technology, or should we wait on the government's action to ease their plight and for how long?

How can we, as a society dependent on the agriculture sector, spread more awareness about the concerning changes, challenges and solutions to double the farmers' income in the years to come?

Amid the promotion of self-reliance and sustainability goal of the nation as a whole, will the government do more to address the increasing problems facing our farmers and ease their woes? How long will the government take to strengthen the agricultural sector and push the state's economy to a new level of growth and progress?
