Expert Answer:

Modern farming methods involve the use of high-yielding variety seeds. These seeds require a combination of chemical fertilisers and pesticides, agricultural implements like tractors, and proper irrigation facilities like electric tube wells to produce the best results. As the inputs are greater in this method, the money required to procure these items is also higher. Thus, it can be said that farmers using modern farming methods have to start with more cash than before.
