Low levels of technology Less availability of transport Good seeds were not available. Slow methods of irrigation. Lack of capital. OLDEN TIME IN AGRICULTURE

Slide 6:

High levels of technology. Use of HYV seeds Good irrigation facilities More and enough capital Availability of land Good storage facilities. MODERN TECHNOLOGY
