The study undertakes an analysis of the spatial patterns of change in Indian agriculture at the state level during 1962-65 to 2005-08. The authors make use of detailed data for 281 district units for a comprehensive discussion of the changes in the cropping patterns and levels of agricultural output at the state and all-India levels during this period.
The strength of this book lies in the fact that it combines theory and practice, tabular and econometric techniques, as well as statistical measures to analyse significant issues related to agriculture in India. This volume is a valuable addition to the existing literature on agriculture and will be of immense benefit to practitioners in the field of Agricultural Economics.
