Huge proportion of the farmers are illiterate. Dn the price elasticity for industrial goods are far more than the price elasticity of the. Agricultural goods. This is why the terms of trade between agricultural and industrial countries are unfavourable. And due to profit motives the investment in industrial sector is more so. The rural incomes are so low.
