The paper analyses the total factor productivity (TFP) of crop sector at the district/region levels and identifies the sources of TFP growth in the Indo-Gangetic Plain. The study concludes that TFP growth is decelerating and large areas under crops in a number of districts are showing clear signs of un-sustainability. Research, extension, education, infrastructure (roads, electrification, educational institutions, health facilities, banking, etc.) have been the major sources of TFP growth in the IGP. Preventing a fall in water table will enhance TFP.
