Language Comprehension

DIRECTIONS for questions 1 to 4: Read the passages below and answer the questions that

‘Corporate farming’ refers to direct ownership or leasing of land by business organizations in

order to produce crops for their captive processing requirements or for the free market. When it
is done for captive purposes, it is referred to as ‘captive farming’ as well, though the two terms
are used interchangeably. As this kind of arrangement is not permitted at present, agri-business
firms are increasingly using contract farming as an alternative. Since agriculture is basically a
state subject, many state governments in India have attempted the liberalization of land laws,
especially land ceiling laws. Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka and Maharashtra have recently
allowed business farms to buy and operate large land-holdings for R&D and export-oriented
production business.
Punjab is planning to increase the ceiling on land-holdings to encourage large-scale farming as a
viable proposition in the state. It is argued that corporate farming leads to better allocative
efficiency, induces higher private investment in agriculture, and results in higher output, higher
income and higher exports. In fact, it is argued that small and marginal farmers should get out of
farming if they are not able to move onto more export-oriented and commercial crops like fruits
and vegetables, as it will not be viable to grow food crops on small holdings. Export-oriented
agriculture requires large investments that only big agribusiness enterprises can make.
Especially in sectors like horticulture, floriculture and pisciculture, the quality of inputs like seeds
is very important, and that can be assured only through large investments in land and

of these.
