Abstract

Agriculture faces two-fold predispositions, both from the i. production front and ii. post-production. There are never-ending production challenges to farmers’ income and these challenges are divided into three sub categories as land, labor and capital. The two Agro-Climatic Zones (EDZ) of Karnataka have been selected through a multi stage purposive sampling to select the households. A household survey was conducted in eight revenue villages in the year 2018-2019. A total of 306 households have been surveyed to document the qualitative and quantitative parameters on how to either double or to stabilise the farmers income in Indian agricultural systems.
