Final and Revised Crop Estimates-An Analysis of Discrepancies

Time lags are common in the collection and compilation of crop-production statistics. It takes about two years to revise the 'final' estimates, framed soon after the harvest, on the basis of complete returns of production.

Predatory Capitalism in Indian Agriculture

Daniel Thorner "Welfare Capitalism" is the principal positive recommendation for agriculture offered by Gunnar Myrdal in his important treatise, "Asian Drama". Yet his own analysis of the agrarian scene in con- temporary India suggests that the type of capitalist farming most likely to spread is predatory rather than welfare-oriented. It follows logically that Indian agricultural workers can promote their own welfare best by organising themselves into powerful labour federations.

More on Returns to Scale in Indian Agriculture

Ashok Rudra In an earlier article in this journal the author had presented some farm level data that failed to indicate any dependence of yield per acre on farm size. He had suggested that since it has been claimed that the aggregated Farm Management data reveal an inverse relationship between size and yield, it should be examined whether there was something in the aggregation process that had given rise to a spurious statistical relationship.

Research and Extension for Farm Improvement

K C Naik R Dwarakinath It is not through proliferation of extension staff that the farmer can be helped to raise yields but by making the extension staff work with the latest knowhow in a climate that subordinates all other activities to legitimate tasks of extension work.

Agriculture in the Fourth Plan-Feasible Growth Rate

Feasible Growth Rate V V Bhatt In the light of the experience of stresses and strains, both economic and social, in the last few years, it may be presumed that it will be the deliberate policy of Government to achieve growth in real national income in the Fourth Plan in a climate of relative stability. The targeted rate of growth of real national income should, therefore, be such as is consistent with the feasible rate of growth of agricultural output.

Farmers Response to Price Movements-Case of Rape and Mustardseed

Case of Rape and Mustardseed T Maitra Whether cultivators in developing countries respond to price changes in a definite way has been a subject of controversy.

HYVP for Rice-Performance in a Bengal District

Performance in a Bengal District S Sengupta M G Ghosh This paper examines the record of the High-Yielding Varieties Programme for rice in Birbhum district of West Bengal One-fifth of the State target of area to be brought under the HYVP in kharij 1968-69 is in this district. The performance of the HYVP in this district is, therefore, important not only as an indicator of the prospects for the Programme, but also from the point of view of achieving the target of additional paddy production in the State.
