Trends of Food Grain Production and its Modern Inputs (1968-2002): An Empirical Study in West Bengal
AbstractWest Bengal, a predominantly food grain producing state, witnessed an upsurge in the food grain production mainly because of the introduction of the seed-fertilizer-irrigation technology in the post-green revolution period. However, food grain production in West Bengal gained rapid momentum only in the 1980s, which was reversed by an equally alarming fall in production in the 1990s. Against this backdrop, the paper reviews the performance of West Bengal’s food grain production over time. It takes into account the findings of the earlier studies and then compares them with the present study to identify the possible reasons for the slower growth performance in the 1990s, and the implications for sustainable growth and national food security.
