Abstract

India is one of the largest agrarian economy in the world, where, about 44 percent of the workforce are employed in agriculture contributing 14 percent of the GDP and about 10 percent of the country’s exports. However, the productivity of the labour force engage in agriculture has continuously decline. The conventional farming method has become unfeasible due to ever raising input prices. This has led to increase in rural indebtedness and serious agrarian crisis in India. The Zero Budget Natural Farming (ZBNF) help to eliminating rural indebtedness and degradation of natural resources in India. This paper presents some empirical evidence on ZBNF and its related myth and reality.
