Umanada Phukan (Author)
Synopsis Adequate attention has not so far been given to study the problems of Agricultural Development in Assam and the adjoining North Eastern States of India. As such the efforts to increase roduction and productivity of crops during the past decades were largely based on central directives and official initiatives. Thus agricultural development in Assam was relatively slow. This book on agricultural development in Assam attempts to understand the nature of agriculture, and analyses the process of agricultural development in Assam from 1950-51 to 1984-85, a period of there and a half decades of planned development efforts. Into account available micro as well as macro studies on the various aspects of the agricultural economy of Assam. The book examines the distribution of land, labour and capital, growth of crop output, agricultural system and the development efforts. It tries to bring out the main factors responsible for slow rates of output growth. Literature on economic development in Assam is not very large. This is the first book on agricultural development in Assam and as such it will be of immense value to students and teachers of the region. It will also be helpful to all associated with the agricultural development of the country in general and Assam in particular.
