Abstract

Indian agriculture is at crossroads owing to the agrarian distress which manifests itself in various forms affecting farmers’ welfare. The present paper tracks the trend in wheat producers’ income between 2006–07 and 2013–14 followed by suggesting framework for doubling farmers’ income (DFI) by 2022. Convergence between science & technology, institutions and policy with emphasis on potential drivers like productivity enhancement through improved genotypes coupled with adoption of cost reduction technologies, diversification, irrigation, price realisation under efficient markets, terms of trade, risk adaptation, public-private partnership, skilling and land use governed by strong policies and leadership at all levels will enable an environment for DFI.
