Direction of Change in Performance of All Crops in Indian Agriculture in Late 1970s-A Look at the Level of Districts and Agro-Climatic Regions

in Indian Agriculture in Late 1970s A Look at the Level of Districts and Agro-Climatic Regions S Mahendra Dev One of the criticisms against the new strategy of agricultural development, which is identified with HYV technology, is that it has widened regional disparities in agricultural performance. This paper examines whether such disparities have in fact widened. Changes in regional disparities for all crops in terms of output per area and output per capita (to take account of demographic pressures) and the interconnections between the two measures are examined across agro-climatic regions in late 1970s as compared to early 1970s and 1960s. Also examined ore differences in the levels of output per area and output per capita across different growth classes.
