About this title

Synopsis:

Economic Liberalisation and Indian Agriculture is a significant study that offers a district-wise analysis on agricultural growth from the time of economic liberalization to slow down in agricultural growth rates and farmers distress. It undertakes an analysis of the spatial patterns of change in Indian agriculture at the state level during 1962–65 to 2005–08.

The authors make use of detailed data for 281 districts for a comprehensive discussion of the changes in the cropping patterns and levels of agricultural output at the state and all-India levels during this period. The strength of this book lies in the fact that it combines an academic and a practical approach, tabular and econometric techniques, as well as statistical measures in order to analyze important issues related to agriculture in India.
