Economic Liberalisation and Indian Agriculture is an in-depth study that throws light on the changes in Indian agriculture post the economic liberalisation of early 1990s. It provides a district-wise analysis on agricultural growth in India from the beginning of liberalisation to the period of slowdown in agriculture and rising farmer distress.

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A must read in Indian agricultural economics. Economic Liberalisation and Indian Agriculture by GS Bhalla and Gurmail Singh is the last of an iconic series, which for 30 years tracked the structure, growth and regional and crop-wise spread of Indian agriculture....The book is a cool authoritative recollection of what happened and occasional jibes at what did not.

-- The Financial Express
The book merits the attention of scholars and policy makers interested in understanding how different policy regimes affected the performance of Indian agriculture. The book is highly recommended for researchers, concerned academicians and policy makers. -- Millennial Asia
