An Analysis of Padddy Productive Growth in West Bangal and Orrisa


  • Renuka Pillai


Eastern India has emerged as a new center of growth in the agricultural sector since 1980’s. Over the period 1984/85-1994/95, the foodgrain production increased at a compound annual rate of 3.1% per annum in this region. Of India’s incremental output of 45.6 million tonnes in foodgrains over this period, around 20% was contributed by the Eastern region. This impressive performance is a relatively recent phenomenon. [Working Paper No. 86]
