What were the problems of nij cultivation?

1.THE PLANTERS FOUND IT DIFFICULT TO EXPAND THE AREA UNDER NIJ CULTIVATION.INDIGO COULD BE CULTIVATED ONLY ON FERTILE LANDS AND THESE WERE ALREADY DENSELY POPULATED .HENCE THE PLANTERS ATTEMPTED TO LEASE IN THE LAND AROUND THE INDIGO FACTORY AND EVICT PEASANTS FROM THE AREA .BUT THIS ALWAYS LED TO CONFLICTS AND TENSION.

2.LABOUR FORCE WAS NOT EASILY AVAILAIBLE .A LARGE PLANTATION REQUIRED A VAST NUMBER OF HANS TO OPERATE .AND LABOUR WAS NEEDED PRECISELY AT A TIME WHEN PEASANTS WERE USUALLY BUSY WITH THEIR RICE CULTIVATION.

3.NIJ CULTIVATION ON A LARGE SCALE ALSO REQUIRED MANY PLOUGHS AND BULLOCKS.INVESTING ON PURCHASE AND MAINTEINAINCE OF PLOUGHS WAS A BIG PROBLEM .NOR COULD SUPPLIES BE EARLY GOT FROM THE PEASANTS SINCE THEIR PLOUGHS AND BULLOCKS WERE BUSY ON THEIR RICE FIELDS,AGAIN EXACTLY AT THE TIME THAT THE INDIGO PLANTERS NEEDED THEM.

CONCLUSION-THE PLANTERS WERE THEREFORE RELUCTANT TO EXPAND THE AREA UNDER NIJ CULTIVATION TILL THE LATE NINETEENTH CENTURY.

IF NEED SHORTER THAN THIS .SORRY I CANT DO THAT.YOU MAY ASK OUR EXPERTS.THEY WOULD DEFINITELY HELP YOU.
