Indiańˇ╗s decelerating wheat- and rice-yield growth rates have led to questions of whether Indiańˇ╗s agricultural sector will be able to meet future food demands. To explore this issue, researchers measure sector-level agricultural total factor productivity (TFP) growth and evaluate how public policies affected TFP from 1980 to 2008. During this period, substantial regional differrences in TFP growth emerged: the Indian West and South achieved faster TFP growth than the rest of the country, largely due to rapid growth in horticulture and animal products. This report examines factors that affect TFP growth, such a public agricultural research and higher education programs, public investments in irrigation infrastructure, and groundwater irrigation from wells vs. surface-water irrigation from canals. Findings support an optimistic view that Indian agriculture will be able to meet future food demands. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
