The primary focus of this policy is on ‘farmer’ defined holistically and not merely on agriculture.  In that sense, it is much more comprehensive than an Agriculture Policy.  The  objective  is,  inter  alia,  to  improve  the  economic  viability  of  farming  through substantially  improving  net  income  of  farmers.  Needless  to  say,  there  is  emphasis  on increased  productivity,  profitability,  institutional  support,  and  improvement of  land, water  and  support  services  apart  from  provisions  of  appropriate  price  policy,  risk mitigation measures and so on.
