Can we avoid farmer suicides?

Agriculture seems to be more of hardwork for farmers, than science. And it is for this reason, we see so many farmers committing suicides as they are not able to survive on their primitive methods of farming. Of course, nature plays an important role too. Educating them on drip irrigation and other aspects of agriculture so as to improve their output would be helpful. 

Here is some information we can use.

Another motivational story was from my uncle who started growing organic rice. It took him 4 whole years to achieve this. But it’s worth it. And he is currently educating other farmers on this.

I hope they receive enough education and knowledge to survive.
