Agricultural Growth, Productivity and Regional Change in India : Challenges of globalisation, liberalisation and food insecurity Hardback
Part of the Routledge Studies in the Modern World Economy series
Agriculture productivity, growth and regional change in post-colonial India from a spatial perspective are yet to be rigorously examined.
In particular, the impacts of economic liberalisation, globalisation and deregulation are not being empirically investigated at a small-area level using 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 strategies. This book employs advanced methods to empirically examine the key characteristics and patterns of regional change in agricultural growth and productivity.
It offers insights on changes in agricultural production and practices since the colonial period through to the Post-Liberalisation phase in India.
It also incorporates the key public policy debates on the progress of India's agricultural development with the aim of formulating spatially integrated strategies to reduce rapid rise in the regional convergence and to promote equitable distribution of strategic government investment.
