Aggregate Supply Responses in Indian Agriculture: Some Empirical Evidence and Policy Implications
To what extent the current adjustment programs can rely on price instruments for bringing about structural change in the agricultural sector depends on how large aggregate agricultural supply response is to changes in agricultural terms of trade. While this paper shows that the elasticity of aggregate agricultural output with respect to the agricultural terms of trade is positive and statistically significant, it also brings out the fact that non-price factors are equally if not more important. Thus, it appears necessary that price incentives need to be substantially supplemented by a well balanced package of government instruments including promotion of technology and infrastructural investments.
