Easy availability of credit coupled with the emergence of contract farming is creating a

Farm mechanization, increasing usage of agrochemicals, improving irrigation
techniques, better seeds and easy availability of credit are expected to be the catalysts
in driving the Indian farming market in the coming years. Research firm IMARC Group
expects the total domestic demand of farm products to reach INR 14,929 Billion (USD
299 Billion) by 2017-18, according to its latest report titled “Indian Agriculture Market
Report & Forecast: 2012-2017”. The report which has done a comprehensive analysis
on the current and future scenario of the Indian farming market expects this market to
experience double digit growth rates during 2011-12 - 2017-18.
According to an analyst at IMARC Group, “Easy availability of credit coupled with the
emergence of contract farming is creating a positive impact on the output, profitability,
yield and quality of the farm produce. Some important developments that have taken
place in this sector include a strong increase in the penetration of organized lending
(institutional finance), Kisan credit cards and microfinance in India. As a result of these
developments, credit for various agricultural activities such as buying land, fertilizers,
agricultural equipments, etc is now easily available to farmers”.
The report found that India currently ranks second in terms of farm output with statistics
suggesting that the country is currently the world's largest producer of many fresh fruits
and vegetables, major spices, various fibrous crops such as jute and several staples
such as millets and castor oil seed. The country also represented the second largest
producer of wheat and rice, the world's major food staples. India, in fact, ranked within
the world's five largest producers of over 80% of agricultural produce items, including
many cash crops such as coffee and cotton. The report defined the farming market to
be composed of fruits, vegetables, cereals, plantation crops, spices and pulses.
According to the report, plantation crops represented the most popular crop in terms of
consumption volume. Plantation crops were followed by cereals and vegetables. In
terms of consumption value, however, cereals represented the most popular segment
followed by fruits and vegetables.
