How did the use of modern farming methods prove beneficial for Indian farmers?
(i) Indian farmers adopted modern farming methods to increase production from the same land. Here, it is worth-mentioning that modern farming methods are a combination of high yielding varities (HYVs) of seeds, chemical fertilisers, presticides, irrigation, etc.
(ii) By using these methods Indian farmers became able to produce much greater amounts of grain on a single plant. They now had greater amounts of surplus wheat to sell in the markets, which eventually improved their economic condition.
