Post-reform India has seen a decline in agricultural growth as well as supply-demand imbalance and rising prices. This book presents a comprehensive analysis of domestic and international prices and trade since 1980-81, covering the past quarter of a century. Backed with rich data, it provides comparisons between the pre- and post-liberalisation policies and their effect on farm profitability, domestic prices and prices variability, and examines their possible role in determining the trajectory of agricultural growth since 1991. The book will appeal to students, scholars and researchers of agriculture studies, economics, finance, and development studies, as well as policy makers and agriculture experts.
