    To drive a wave of technology in the agriculture and farming sector, the Finance Minister said that the government will deploy ‘Kisan Drones' for crop assessments, land records and spraying of insecticides and nutrients.

    As 2022-23 has been announced as International Year of Millets, Sitharaman announced that a rationalised scheme will be brought in to increase domestic oilseed production will be brought in to cut down imports. Emphasising the government's thrust on modern-day agriculture and organic farming; she added that chemical-free natural farming will be promoted throughout the country with a focus on farmers' land in 5 km wide corridors along the river Ganga, in the first stage.

    While the broad announcements in the Union Budget offer plenty of scope for long term and inclusive development, the challenges faced by farmers in terms of elevated input costs and fuel price inflation largely remained unaddressed. The fertilizer subsidy in the budget has dropped to Rs 1.05 lakh crore from last year's revised number of Rs 1.40 lakh crore which is alarming given the massive surge in global fertilizer prices. The food subsidy has also been cut as the allocated amount is down to Rs 2.1 lakh crore from Rs 2.9 lakh crore last year. However, government has increased the agricultural credit target to Rs 18 lakh crore for the 2022-23 fiscal from Rs 16.50 lakh crore for the current fiscal.
