0 Reviews
Written by a distinguished group of scholars and economists, and at the cutting of current research in the chosen field, these two volumes scan the ups and downs of the agriculture development processes in India over a period of five decades and the policy issues involved at various stages along the way. Included in the first volume are overviews of policy framework, agricultural growth, and investment in agriculture. The second volume covers water resources, institutional reforms, food security, and globalisation. Together, the two volumes promise to be an invaluable resource for researchers and policymakers.
