Agricultural legislation is enacted to protect and safeguard the interests of the farming community.

Several Schemes and Programmes for the benefit and welfare of the farmers are also being implemented in the State in order to strengthen the agriculture sector and improve the overall conditions of the farmers.

The intended objectives of these laws and schemes have not reached the majority of the farming community due to a lack of legal awareness and understanding.

Farming goes on smoothly and farmers can also earn better when they understand the scope of these laws, and the benefits of the welfare schemes and utilise them for the redressal of their problems.
