Group Description

Welcome to AgriConcern!

The small & marginal farmers of Uttar Pradesh are among the most marginalized community of the world. Without any identity or self-esteem, these fatalist masses are merely of statistical value for the Governments. It has been proved that massive food production has been failed to guarantee 'food security' for the poor, especially the small and marginal farmers- one of the contributors to the over spilling granaries of the state. Despite this, poor & subsistence farmers in the country have yet to struggle for their basic two courses of meals and fundamental rights! Ironically, the women farmers who perform most of the agriculture activities right from sowing to harvesting and storage are yet to be recognized as farmer.

Another aspect is although the modern agriculture practices have resulted in high productivity, the risks of long-term harmful impact on the lives of people, livelihoods and environment have also been increased manifolds. The techno-scientific developments have completely changed the way of farming system our farmers have been practicing since the time immemorial.

This group strive to provide voice to the voiceless marginalized farming communities, to draw the attention of the government and the world especially the developed countries towards the plight of subsistence farmers, advocate and support the rights of women farmers, and to promote concepts and practices of sustainable agriculture in India and across the world.

You are most welcome to join this group, share your views, experiences amongst members of this group and contribute in the efforts to bring positive changes in the lives of small and marginal farmers, women farmers, shared croppers of India and third world countries.

Thanking you,

Sincerely,
