Subsidy to farmers on purchase of seeds, fertilizers, equipment like tractors, electric pumps and electricity to encourage use of modern technology in agriculture while creating a simultaneous economic base to sustain it.

Making available credit to farmers for purchase of seeds and equipment.

Establishment of research institutes that work towards developing newer seeds and technologies to improve productivity.

Spreading awareness among farmers regarding the use of technology through television and radio.

Provisions like minimum support price to guarantee returns to farmers on their crops.
