Agricultural development in India since independence

, : Agricultural development in India since independence. The Indian economy and its performance since independence: 194-205

There has been a rapid growth of Indian agriculture since independence, reflecting the importance accorded to the sector in various policy decisions.

Distortions have been introduced into Indian agriculture by both technological and institutional factors.
