The essays, based on the research and analyses conducted by academics from different parts of the country, examine the reasons for the growing agrarian crisis and increasing incidences of farmers' suicides in specific regions of the country. They take into account regional discrepancies in agricultural growth and implementation of policies in specific areas. In doing that, they also bring to light the various types of farm sector distress, which, in turn, leads to a better understanding of the whole situation. The compilation also attempts to define a systematic policy line.
