The region has, about the previous 10 years, reached sizeable development in agriculture efficiency, but the development has been pushed by non-crop sectors this sort of as aquaculture, reported Suresh Pal, eminent agriculture economist and Director of ICAR-Countrywide Institute of Agricultural Economics and Plan Study (NIAP).
He was addressing the BusinessLine Agri Summit on farm efficiency below on Friday.
He reported development in agriculture efficiency has been three for each cent in the previous two a long time and 5 for each cent right before that. And this development has come from States which were historically weak in agriculture.
In Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Chhattisgarh, the development in crop, livestock and fisheries has been six for each cent, far previously mentioned the national development, and not viewed in the Green Revolution-backed States this sort of as Punjab and Haryana.
Even so, Pal also expressed issue about the gradual development in agriculture efficiency in Uttar Pradesh, which has very good irrigation amenities and fertile land.
Studies have demonstrated there has been a convergence of economic development and agricultural efficiency.
The seed use has also viewed a sizeable hike, supported by hybrid seed technological innovation. Labour efficiency riding on far better technological innovation has also contributed to the development figures, he added.
