As the population of the word increasing exponentially day by day; As a result, the nations are facing problems to provide foods for a large number of peoples. In that case, countries are depending on technological advances in agriculture to produce more foods, but still, there are many peoples around the world who go hungry.
As a result of technological advances in agriculture, many peoples become unemployed. Everyone is using machines to produce foods. Where it requires a week for dozen of men to make lands ready for cultivation, machines require only a day or two. Therefore, the peoples associated with farming became jobless. There were almost one billion workers in this field, but a recent article published by the Indian Journal of agricultural science claimed that the number has decreased by 30% by now. Only in India, every day 28 people dependent on farming die by committing suicide only because they are unable to feed their family.
The government can help these workers in enormous ways. First of all, the government can educate farmers about many technical works, like maintaining agricultural machines. As a result, they don’t even need to change their profession, and they will become more productive in this field as they have prior knowledge about agriculture. Also, the government can increase the number of subsidies associated with agriculture and create an easy loan policy only for farmers, so that they become self-employed and won’t have to face financial pressure.
To conclude, we can’t disagree with how technical advantages are helping in agriculture. But it doesn’t mean everyone should turn their faces form the workers. These agricultural advantages will not be considered as development if the peoples associated with it sill go hungry.
