Farm mechanization plays a critical role in increasing agricultural productivity. Mechanization has been well received in India as one of the important elements of modernization of agriculture, enhancing the agricultural productivity and consequently rural prosperity. In this regard various initiatives have been taken by the Government and in particular, the Department of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare (DA&FW), Ministry of Agriculture. To ensure the quality of Farms Machinery and Implements, the performance testing is being done at the Farm Machinery Training and Testing Institutes (FMTTIs), designated State Agricultural Universities (SAUs) and ICAR institutions. The Government is helping farmers by providing subsidy to procure machinery to improve farm input and farm power availability.
