Agriculture in COVID-19 Pandemic: The Indian Perspective

Agriculture is the backbone of the Indian economy, and like other agriculture-dependent countries, it offers jobs, income, and investment possibilities, as well as having direct and indirect effects on agriculture-related sectors and the rural nonfarm economy. However, much care must be taken to understand the elements impacting agriculture’s supply side and its different demand, which…

Evaluation of Production Efficiency of Rice Producing Indian States: Post Reforms Analysis Using Translog Production Function

The paper uses state-level data for the periods 1990-91 to 2004-05 and 2005-06 to 2013-14 to analyse the production performance of the rice producing states of India. As suggested by Battese and Coelli (1995), the stochastic output frontier model using panel data has been used to estimate the efficiency variations taking into account an integrated…

Estimation of Production Efficiency for Wheat Producing States in India Using Stochastic Frontier Approach

The paper examines the production efficiency of wheat producing states of India using state level data for the periods 1990-91 to 2004-05 and 2005-06 to 2013-14 using stochastic production frontier model proposed by Battese and Coelli (1995). The results show that inefficiency is present in agricultural production of the states where mean efficiency estimates ranges…
