Title Need of Guiding the Farmers about Proper Selection, Installation and Operation of their Pumpsets
Author Name Bihari L. Patel

In rural areas of our country, the farmers face acute shortages of electricity and diesel fuels used for pumping water through irrigation pumpsets. The prices of these energy sources especially diesel have increased nearly three times doing the last decade. Such increase in cost of fuel leads to increase in cost of production "'f irrigated crops. As a ·result of this, the farmers do not get remunerative prices of their agricultural produce. It has been observed through studies that the index of prices received by the farmers during the last decade was about 204.0 whereas the index of prices paid by them for their purchases was 284.4. Thus we see that the economy of the small farmers gets affected very badly.
