SMAM Scheme: In order to increase crop production and productivity by cultivating modern methods, farmers must have modern agricultural equipment to do agricultural work. They must do it at the right time with advanced seeds, chemical fertilizers, pesticides and water for irrigation. Modern agricultural devices not only give impetus to agricultural growth. Rather, the economic condition of farmers also gets strengthened.
