* As we know that Indian economy is based on agriculture, so financial inclusion in agriculture may be a better way to empower the Indian farmer. Research Methodology: This a descriptive research paper based on secondary data. Data have been found out from R.B.I, NABARD, Commercial Bank, Cooperative Banks and RRBs on different view point.

1. Introduction 1.1. Research Question How can the process of farming be improved to assist in solving the problem of food insecurity in Africa? 1.2. Hypothesis Vertical farming is a more effective method of farming as it reduces farming time and increases yield.
At that time the horticultural crops occupied just 0.42 percent (19170 hectares) of the total cropped area of the state. But later with the introduction of green revolution in Haryana, the state achieved the stage of being self sufficient in terms of food and fodder crops and also it becomes the second highest supplier to the national food basket. After 1990s with the liberalized nature of markets and growing urbanization really promotes the production of HVCs crops which directly lead to a major shift in the area under these group of commodities. Moreover, with the introduction of state horticulture mission under the National Horticulture Mission also help in the expansion of area and production of the HVCs crops. Now the area has been increased from 0.42 percent (19170 hectares) in 1966-67 to 6.4 percent (415930 hectares) in 201011.

A real piece of the economy relies on upon cultivating through creation, transforming and dissemination of major agricultural commodities. Agricultural Price Policy: This policy is a tool to influence the price of agricultural product. It is on motivator to the maker to create a specific item agreeing the desired amount. Agricultural price policy is a policy in which government assumes a part in impacting or deciding the costs of agricultural inputs and outputs.

Crop Loans • The crop loan covers all expenses right from preparatory stage to marketing of crops including the credit required for ploughing, sowing, weeding, purchasing of fertilizer and pesticides, labour etc. • The crop loan is required for 3-4 months in most of the regions of the country and the maximum period under crop loan is up to 18 months. • The recovery performance of crop loans is generally better than many other activities and therefore NPA level in crop loan is lower, which results in better interest income from such advances. • Crop loan is financed through a network of institutions in which RBI, NABARD and Primary Lending Institutions are involved. It is an integral part of agricultural advances and is within the fold of priority sector.
The Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation take divided responsibilities for the land management.

The Indian food processing sector acts as a valuable link between two core sectors of the economy - agriculture and industry. Processing gives long shelf life and greater availability to farm produce. Processing also successfully breaks the seasonal cycle of farming by enabling the end-users to have the product round the year whenever and wherever they require with long shelf life. Food processing is considered as a sunrise industry in India with great scope for major growth as a lot of potential is left untapped. Only 2 per cent fruits and vegetables, 35 per cent milk, 21 per cent of meat and 6 per cent of poultry products are only being processed at present.
