Growth and Imbalances in Indian Agriculture

Dharm Narain Even with the bumper harvest of 1970-71 the growth rate of total foodgrain output at 2.9 per cent per annum since 1949-50 through 1970-71 is no higher than that, at 3 per cent per annum, realised during the period 1949-50 to 1964-65. And if the focus be extended to include cash crops, for which the growth rate for the respective periods shows a significant decline from 3,6 to 3 per cent per annum, the overall growth rate of agricultural output is seen to drop from 3.2 to 2.9 per cent per annum. This is giving rise to a major imbalance between the foodgrain and the non-foodgrain components of agricultural production.
