Agriculture in India in the 1970s

Notes 1 See 'The Development of a Dual Economy', Dale W Jorgenson, Economic Journal, June 1961, 2 For a detailed discussion of such problems in the Indian context, see 'Subsistence Sector in Indian Agriculture', V M Jakhade and N A Mujumdar, Reserve Bank of India Bulletin, September 1963.

Opportunities in the Green Revolution

Two opposite views have crystallised in the current debate on the indirect effects of the "new agricultural policy". According to one of these views, the policy is responsible for widening the gap, and for the growing polarisation, between the rich and the poor. The second view on the other hand holds that the most important indirect effect of the new policy has been the hastening of the process of modernisation of agriculture.

Estimates of Farm Income in India, 1951-52 to 1967-68

 During the last few years, the agricultural sector has benefited from a high level of prices which has turned the terms of trade in its favour. Quantitative assessment of the impact of this factor on incomes of farmers and on incomes of various size-groups of farms is not all available.

Rate of Return in Engineering Industry

This paper attempts to develop a simple method of estimating the marginal productivity of capital from balance-sheet data. Three conclusions follow from the analysis:

Management Education-A Perspective for its Evaluation

A Perspective for its Evaluation S K Roy TOWARDS management development, the three major inputs are: management education and training, organisational research, and management consultancy. 1 In a given business and industry setting, each one of these inputs would have its characteristic strengths and weaknesses. In India we have been overly enthusiastic about the first and the most pedagogic of these inputs, viz, education and training. Neither our management institutions nor our business and industry have adequately em- phasised either research or consultancy as instruments for management development and organisational change. At the same time, given a limited resource allocation, we probably need to view these inputs now in definite means- and-ends relationships.

Data Gaps Facing Business Economists

/f practising economists in India were asked to rank the major hazards of their profession, "data gaps' would perhaps receive the highest score. The ease with which business economists in the more developed, countries ban lay their hands on useful environmental data certainly has enabled them to play an influential role in their organisations.... A strategy for improving the data system should undoubtedly receive the higher priority in India.

Managerial Ideology in India

Although in Indian management circles, as in the West, ideology is a bad word, most managers tend to hold certain beliefs in common, both regarding the economic and social situation in which they operate and their self-image as 'engineers' of change and growth.

Productivity and Allocation of Resources between Rice and Jute in West Bengal

(i) examine the functional relationship between inputs of fertiliser, water, labour and plant protection devices and crop output; (ii) estimate the marginal products of each of these inputs in aman rice and jute in West Bengal; (iii) examine the elasticities of production with respect to different inputs and the returns to scale that prevail in production of these two crops; (iv) find out the optimum combination of the variable farm resources within aman rice and jute as well as between the two crops in order to maximise the total gross farm returns from these crops.

Profitability of High-Yielding Wheat and Rice

The slower acceptance of HVY rice compared to HYV wheat may be because of (i) differences in the responsiveness of HYV rice and wheat to fertiliser or (ii) higher quality-based price discounts for HYV rice than for HYV wheat.

Regional Dispersion of Agricultural Income- Implications of the New Technology

(a) to bring together relevant data on the spatial distribution of agricultural income and to squeeze as much information as possible out of these data; and, (b) to attempt preliminary projections of agricultural income distribution among the States for five years hence, incorporating the effects of the new technology.
