In India, 70% of the population is associated with the Agriculture Sector. Moreover, 51% of the total area in the country is cultivated. This means agriculture is done on half of the land of the country. As most of the people in rural areas are involved in agriculture activities hence the government has been making continuous efforts to help them.

Farm machinery plays an important role in agriculture & horticulture but to increase production & reduce costs, many schemes are being run for the farmers by the Central & State Government. Agricultural machinery is provided to the farmers on subsidy (grant). The objective of the government behind providing agricultural machinery on subsidy is to help small-scale farmers & double their income along with increasing crop production. The harvesting of Kharif crops is going to start from 15th September.
