Q.3 How do subsidies affect the cropping pattern, crop diversity and economy of farmers? What is the significance of crop insurance, minimum support price and food processing for small and marginal farmers? (15 Marks)

Mentor’s Comments-

  • In introduction, talk about the subsidies given by the government on various agricultural inputs.
  • Examine the effects of the subsidies on cropping pattern, crop diversity and economy of farmers- although economically helpful for farmers leads to distorted cropping patterns, poor soil health, food inflation etc
  • Mention the significance of crop insurance, MSP and food processing one by one.
  • Conclude by saying farming needs to be made remunerative by reforms in entire farm-to-fork chain rather than by just making it subsidy-dependent.
