The Indian government's agricultural policies are primarily focused on the promotion of
conventional agriculture, on monocropping production schemes paired with chemical
agricultural inputs into the food production system. These practices had led to an increasing soil
fertility problem in India over the last decades. As a consequence, there has been a rapid
increase in the number of Indian farmers and state governments adopting and promoting
regenerative agricultural practices. This has increased awareness about sustainable agriculture
among farmers that live in rural areas where access to information about these practices is
limited or nonexistent.
