Abstract

Hunger has become a major problem to most of the human race. Decreased output from agriculture is a major contributing factor. For most third world countries the farming population has been constantly suffering. The poorer strata among farmers suffer due to the lack of awareness and their own incapability to utilize the methods modern science has readily made available to the masses. The small size of the individually owned lands makes it mored ifficult to utilize the machinery which would have otherwise substituted for their current levels of knowledge. Ironically, if improved machinery were to be implemented to replace the farmer, leading to even 10% unemployment, a staggering 14.4 million people with no other significant skill sets [1] would be unemployed indefinitely. This leads to a stalemate which ultimately benefits no-one; the agricultural output does resources continue to decimate our already dwindling pool of resources. This paper intends to present methods to equip the farmer with tools that supplement his knowledge as well as add to the output of his farm without leading to mass unemployment.
