 indian farming: 
labor intensive 
mostly subsistence farming 

nearly 60% of population is dependent on farming 

most farms are rainfed.

american farming:
machine intensive
mostly commercial farming
less than 3% of population is dependent on farming
most farms are irrigated.


Both countries give subsidies t their farmers but US subsidies are way more than Indias (hence the Doha round dipute)

1) In India farmers live very far away from there farms so it takes time to get to there farm and in the USA farmers stay very near to there farm.

(2) In India land is very less land is available with the farmers and in the USA large amount on land is available with farmers.

(3) In India electricity is not easily available in villages whereas in the USA there is no problem of electricity.

(4) In India farmers don 't have additional income from dairies and piggery 's whereas USA farmers have additional income from these fields.

(5) In India easy loan is not available which effects the life of the farmers whereas in the USA easy loan is available.
