Ailing Agricultural productivity in economically Fragile Region of India: An analysis of synergy between public Investment and Farmers capacity.

  • Co-PI : Dr. P. K. Awasthi

  • Date of start : 01-01-2008 to 30-6-2010


  • To examine the trend of public investment in agriculture and agricultural productivity in selected states.
  • To study the intensity of rural infrastructure and its interaction / impact on use of critical inputs (quantity and quality of seeds, fertilizers, irrigation) in crops production in the region.
  • To assess the farmers’ economic capacity and willingness to use the critical inputs optimally.
  • To estimate future projection of production and productivity of major crops in the selected status.
  • To identify and prioritize the constraints in and suggest suitable policy options for increasing the agricultural productivity in the region.
