(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.
