Hence, a major chunk of the cultivable and fertile land in the village is left uncultivated for a long time. Farmers reportedly remain idle throughout the year as there is no other alternative employment opportunities in the village. In the field survey, 74 per cent farmers reported that farming is not profitable for them as a source of livelihood. The next best alternative is to depend on cattle rearing as 43 per cent of farmers reported. However, cattle rearing is also not considered as a ...
