Computers as Aids to Management Decisions-Application to Linear Programming

Application to Linear Programming V L Mote B G Shah The variables that need to be incorporated into management decision-making have increased mani- fold. At the same time, the magnitude of inputs that have to be committed to projects has increased considerably making sub-optimal decisions very expensive. Hence the need to use advanced 7nethods to aid decision-making.

Strategic Planning Some Operational Considerations

Strategic Planning: Some Operational Considerations S K Bhattacharyya The process of strategic planning or formulation of objectives requires consideration of the external as well as the internal environments and of the likely state of competition for assessing the threats and opportunities that arise during the strategic plan period. The objectives finally set must keep in view (a) the minimal level indicated by the weighted average cost of capital and (b) the highest level theoretically attainable by exploiting all potential opportunities and by overcoming all future threats, Such possibilities have, of course, to be reviewed in the light of the strengths and weaknesses of the organisation and to be related to the past performance of the unit.

 ous kinds in the past year or so. The referendum, it is argued, will unite around Pompidou the majority of French voters, while isolating all those who are at the two extremes of the political spectrum. Even the orthdox Gaullists, as represented by the former prime minister and minister of foreign affairs, Couve de Murville, are expected to find themselves cast into political limbo.

Planning and Implementation of Financing the Area Development Scheme

the Area Development Scheme D K Desai Hari Prakash The area approach in agricultural financing was adopted by the commercial banks to overcome their loch of an infrastructure in the rural areas by concentrating on definite regions. At the same time, to develop the necessary expertise and to pool the necessary financial resources for agricultural financing, the banks sponsored the Agricultural Finance Corporation in 1968.

Peasant Farms and Socialist Transformation of Agriculture in Poland, 1945-1975

of Agriculture in Poland, 1945-1975 S Ganguli Although socialist transformation of the economy requires eventual social ownership of all means of production, both in industry and agriculture, there has to be a policy for the transition. The problem of transition consists of the contradiction between the peasants' attachment to their land and the State's need to put land under State ownership. Thus, while the State cannot at its will socialise agriculture, continuous development of a socialist economy is not possible without it. The physical problem of the transition concerns the accumulation of funds for investment. In any country with a large agricultural sector and a small industrial sector the investible surplus has to come initially mainly from agriculture.

On the Question of the Mode of Production in Indian Agriculture-A Preliminary Note

in Indian Agriculture A Preliminary Note Paresh Chattopadhyay In recent times, scholars have brought out a lot of empirical data on various aspects of Indian agriculture. These data throw some light on the mode or modes of production in our agriculture. However, the theoretical discussions on this question have not always been free from confusion.

New Seed Varieties and the Small Farm

M Schluter John W Mellor That there is a relationship between adoption of the new varieties and size of farm, is generally accepted. In this article, the variability that existed within this relationship by crops, seasons, regions and years, in the period 1966-67 to 1968-69 is examined. Also examined are a number of factors which may underlie the relationship.

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.

Agricultural Wages, Production and the High-Yielding Varieties

High-Yielding Varieties Robert W Herdt Edward A Baker With the dramatic increases in agricultural production in certain regions following the use of high- yielding varieties, interest has focused on the fortunes of agricultural labourers. On the one hand, there has been concern that the rising wages of agricultural labourers in certain areas may reflect an increasing scarcity of labour, entailing mechanisation of operations. On the other hand, there is the feeling that agricultural labourers have not received their due share in the benefits of the new technology, i-e, that wages have tended to stay constant despite the rising productivity.
