Food for Policy: Reforming Agriculture

by Arpita Mukherjee,Surabhi Mittal

Condition: See description

Cambridge University Press/Foundation Books, 2008. First edition. Hardcover. New. Food for Policy – Reforming Agriculture is the first book of its kind to highlight the reforms needed to achieve a ‘second Green Revolution` which will then make way for an ‘evergreen` revolution in India . Although there has been much discussion on reforming the Indian agriculture sector and making it globally competitive, it continues to be plagued by various constraints and the reform process has been extremely slow. This book is a compilation of articles by experts who provide comprehensive solutions for the Indian agriculture sector. A unique feature of this book is that it builds on the existing work on reforms and trade in agriculture while focussing on the gaps in the current literature. There are very few books today that try to address issues such as agri-business and non-farm employment. Food for Policy – Reforming Agriculture fills this lacuna by covering a wide range of areas including agriculture trade policy, price policy, infrastructure development and supply chain efficiency. Food for Policy – Reforming Agriculture will appeal to academics, policy-makers, the agro-business industry, investors, agriculture experts, students and general readers who are keen on being acquainted with the Indian agricultural scenario and its reform requirements.
