Indian farmers are literate where as farmers in usa are literate and they occupy more land and american farmers are more civilised tha indian farmers. american farmers take the help of machines unlike indian farmers who do most of the work by hand.american farmers are richer.

the farmers in india mostly know traditional method as they do not want to go through expences. where as farmars in usa are not less than a big buissnessman they have every thing varing from a tractor to an aeroplane. they have their house in farmland area. they have direct connection to the setellite which gives them easy assacibility of there farm.

a farmer in india will have less farmland like 1.5 hectares. where as a farmer in usa will have a farmland of about250 hectares.

They have nothing in common, especially if you are referring to the very large number of subsistence farmers in India. 1. There are essentially no subsistence farmers in the U.S. 2. Even those farmers in the U.S. that deliberately eschew modern machinery (the Amish, etc.) typically use a higher level of technology than the typical Indian farmer. They also farm more efficiently: Indian fields and farm holding are, in general, too small to be farmed efficiently. 3. The net result is that farmers in India have a standard of living which parallels their very very low productivity

India is having more than fifty percent of its population in agriculture but in US merely 1 crore people do this so there has to be the difference The subsidy which US government gives to its farmer is high because of this only because they need to care only this much people but in India the case is not the same .

(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.

(6) In India the connectivity of food grain market is poor whereas In the USA connectivity of food grain market much better.

(7) In India farming is treated as livelihood by farmers whereas in the USA it is treated as business.

These are the reasons of difference in lifestyle of Indian farmers as compare to the American farmers.

USA is commercially strong country the people of USA are very hard working . While cultivating or planting crops they use the most advanced tools and machines the farmers in USA are very rich and literate people of USA don 't consider farming a thing of embarrassment or insult . If u visit USA the lands where crops are cultivated are very big .
While in India lands are very small . It is due to rule that from the fathers property each son will get one part . so if father has big land and it is divided between 4 sons then automatically the land will be small . if the first son is going to set up a factory in his land then other 3 brother will have while farming.
In India farming is considered a think of embarrassment . From a many years infact today also people think that the farmers are illiterate and poor. When we think about farmer a thin man holding a spade in the field and then digging it if this the image of farmer in India how can we think going to better country categories list . farmers will not provide us with food how can we alive
