Farm Size, Productivity and Returns to Scale

It is suggested in this paper that Indian agriculture is characterised by constant returns to scale. With returns to scale constant, the explanation for variations in productivity per acre as farm size changes lies in the level of various inputs associated with farm size. The higher output per acre in smaller farms is really a function of the higher input of labour.

During the period of the first three five-year Plans, all prices received and paid by agriculture show- ed an upward trend, though at differential rates.

Regional Patterns of Education-Rimland and Heartland in Indian Education

Susanne Hoeber Rudolph Responsibility for education lies primarily on the States.

Demand Forecast for Dry Batteries

This paper estimates the demand for dry battery cells with the help of end-use and regression analysis. Since such batteries are a small component of consumer expenditure, the demand for them is derived from the demand for two major commodities, torches and transistor radios, to which government and export demand are added.
