Though agriculture practices in the country have progressed over the centuries, with farmers often using mechanisation and high technology for best results, tribal farmers in Rajasthan still stick to traditional methods of cultivation. The camera captures a farmer ploughing his agricultural field in Kovia village of Udaipur district in Rajasthan in a primitive manner. The medieval style plough is used with the help of oxen and the farmer puts seeds and cultivates the land manually for the rabi crop.
Modern agricultural technologies have yet to reach this remote hilly terrain in one of the most backward tribal-dominated regions of the State. Small and marginal farmers, who are poor and uneducated, use their small land holdings for bare survival.
