Agricultural Productivity In Orissa: A Spatio-Temporal Analysis
Agriculture is the mainstay of Orissan economy. Nearly, 30% of its Net State Domestic Product (NSDP) comes from agriculture and 75% of the total workforce depends on agriculture. This paper analyzes the nature of structural change in Orissa and the Inter-sectoral variation in contribution to Gross Domestic Product. As the major focus of the study is productivity, district-wise agricultural productivity has been measured to estimate the inter-districts differences. The results show that structural transformation has many negative consequences on the social fabric as well as economic standard of the people. Furthermore, low productivity of agriculture in the State and high inter-district variation in agricultural productivity are mainly due to the huge variation in input use and natural calamities. This paper provides the long-term sustainable solution through improved agricultural productivity and concrete policy decisions to reduce inter district disparity.
