After the abolishment of protections under Article 370, Kashmiri farmers are as exposed to the anti-farmer laws as farmers in India. The tyranny of capitalists will leave Kashmiri farmers vulnerable to exploitation.

Corporatisation will reduce farmer incomes, increase debt and economic distress. Kashmiri farmers will be forced to mortgage land to raise loans. If local agriculture is not viable, Kashmir will be forced to depend on import for all food requirements.
The new anti-farmer laws threaten the agricultural industry and labour of Kashmir. 60% of Jammu & Kashmir's revenue is generated by agriculture and animal husbandry. 80% of the erstwhile state is based in rural areas and directly or indirectly involved in farming activity.
