Relative efficiency of owner and tenant cultivation: a case study



Relative efficiency of owner and tenant cultivation: a case study



Economic and Political Weekly 14(39): 493-496



The paper examines the relationship between size of holding, the intensities with which different types of input are applied, and output obtained under different types of tenancy. Data from 889 households (808 engaged in agricultural occupations) in West Bengal are used. Quantitative results relating to input and output under different types of tenancy are offered and assessed in relation to farm size groups.
