Designing rural technology delivery systems for mitigating agricultural distress: a study of Anantapur district

Designing Rural Technology Delivery Systems for Mitigating Agricultural Distress: A Study of Anantapur District focuses on the technological dimension of the agricultural crisis that is currently gripping the Indian economy. A perusal of this study will show that it will be possible to bridge the prevailing yield gap in the district, provided integrated attention is given to knowledge delivery, input supply, popularization of appropriate technologies, soil health, water harvesting and management, and market management. The results of the study show that there are considerable opportunities for increasing the productivity and profitability of small and marginal farm holdings through a technological upgradation of farm practices, supported by assured and remunerative marketing opportunities.
