To enhance agriculture productivity and income to the farmers besides breaking the vicious cycle of rural indebtedness Agriculture Investment Support Scheme, popularly known as Rythu Bandhu is introduced from the year 2018-19 Kharif season to take care of initial investment needs of every farmer.

Investment Support for Agriculture and Horticulture crops is being provided by way of grant of Rs. 5,000 per acre per season for purchase of inputs like Seeds, Fertilizers, Pesticides, Labour and other investments twice a year, for Rabi (Yasangi) and Kharif (Rainy) seasons. This is a first direct farmer investment support scheme in India, where the cash is paid directly.
