Around seventy percent of the population in India is dependent on agriculture for their lively hood making it the biggest employer in the country. It is a diverse topic to talk on as it can be done just for completing the food needs of the family or completely commercial in a way to grow cash crops which is used only for the commercial purpose.
As a occupation, agriculture is one of the most involving jobs by itself. There are times when the farmer has to continuously look after the fields to make sure that nobody gets into the field and does damages to the newly ploughed farm, make the proper arrangements such as correct and sufficient water supply to ensure proper yield etc.
Today when a farmer grows a crop, some of the multinational companies in the retail sector directly contact him and take all of the food grains available with them at a price just above the market because these companies purchase at huge quantity so that they could brand them and sell them at a high rates to the people in metros or the semi metros.
Mostly the farmers who are selling their crops to these companies get a good amount of profit making them self sufficient and increasing their financial stature so that their ability to spend increases making it a big boost for the economy which insures the growth of the company to the right track.
Agriculture is mostly dependent on weather i.e. for the crops which is grown in winter needs fog and a some rain and a very low temperature so that they have good growth, where as the crops which grow in summer require a very hot temperature and some which require rainy water at the time when they are growing.
