Agricultural Growth, Productivity and Regional Change in India : Challenges of Globalisation,
about this item
Agriculture productivity, growth and change in post-colonial India from a spatial perspective has yet to be rigorously examined and in particular, the impacts of economic liberalisation and deregulation have not been empirically investigated at a small area level using more advanced statistical and spatial techniques. Understanding the process of regional formation and the rapid transitioning of agricultural landscapes in the post liberalisation phase is pivotal to developing and devising regional economic development.
This book employs advanced methods to empirically examine the key characteristics and patterns of change in agricultural growth and productivity. It offers insights on changes in agricultural production and practices since the colonial period through to post-liberalisation phase in India and also incorporates the key public policy debates on the progress of India’s agricultural development with the aim to devising strategies to reduce rapid rise in the convergence and equitable distribution of strategic government investment.
