Abstract: On an average an increase of 25 per cent in productivity and 40 per cent in profit have been noted for the farmers who have opted for contract farming. The contracting companies too are finding it lucrative to make huge investments in advanced technologies and inputs. The success of such operations in the field can be gauged from the fact that over 150 seed production companies are vying for business with the contracting companies.
