Economics of Agro-Industries

Keshav Dev Gaur (Editor) Anil Kumar Singh (Author)
Synopsis India being an agricultural economy, setting up industries that make use of the produce of agriculture directly or indirectly are considered more desirable in the context of the economic development of the country. Such a development has a two way effect. First, agriculture helps agro-based industries to make use of the raw materials directly supplied by this sector. Secondly, agriculture facilitates the growth of those type of industries, which produce several inputs like fertilizers, pesticides and agricultural implements that help to promote the productivity and expansion of agriculture. It is a fact that the agro industries have been playing an immense and crucial role in providing agricultural inputs and machines to the agriculture sector. There has been a lot of achievement in agricultural productivity through mechanisation and modernisation. In this book, an attempt has been made to examine various issues and aspects related to agro industries in India. Further, factors responsible for development of agro industries have been examined intensively. Efforts being made by the government for strengthening agro industries during Five Year Plans have been analysed systematically. Various yardsticks for further expansion and development of agro industries have been suggested.
