How infrastructure and financial institutions affect agricultural output and investment in India
AbstractHow do the decisions of farmers, financial institutions, and government agencies interact and affect agricultural investment and output in a region - and to what extent are these"actors"influenced by a region's location and agroclimactic endowments (for example, rainfall or the soil's moisture-holding capacity). This paper presents an attempt to quantify the relationships between key factors, using district level time-series data from India.
