Ancient Farming Vs. Techno-Farming - An Empirical Study
Ancient farming methods used by farmers throughout the world varied quite a bit. Farmers developed many ways without technology to maintain soils, ward off frost and freeze cycles and protect their crops from animals and others. The largest issue that faced farmers during the ancient as well as the war was the lack of manpower available to work the land due to military enlistments. In response to the demands for labour and labour-saving devices , farmers quickened the pace of the adaptation of new technologies for use on the farm. During this time will promotes to technological expansion, perhaps the greatest innovation of the twentieth century was the adaption of the internal combustion engine to agricultural tasks, most notable in the form of the gasoline or diesel tractor. This has been influenced to change the life of the farmers as well.
In the present scenario, the techno-farmers access the information of the required quality always has the potential of improving efficiency in all spheres of agriculture. The emerging scenario of the deregulated agriculture, thanks to WTO, has brought in a greater 'need' and urgency to make it an integral part of decision making by Indian agriculture community. Information Technology (IT) through inclusive technological growth in agriculture that has a major role to play in all facets of Indian agriculture. In addition to facilitating farmers in improving the efficiency and productivity of agriculture and allied activities, by providing timely and quality information inputs for decision making towards maximising their yields. This paper provides empirical evidence on how culturally bounded with their old systems of farming when compare to ancient farming to techno-farming and study hoe gradually enhanced economic stability through their farming activities.
