Agriculture productivity, growth and regional change in post-colonial India from a spatial perspective are yet to be rigorously examined.

In particular, the impacts of economic liberalisation, globalisation and deregulation are not being empirically investigated at a small-area level using advanced statistical and spatial techniques.

Similarly, the commercial crops or non-food crops include raw cotton, tea, coffee, raw jute, sugarcane, oil. Hence, we have used the grouping into regions as per the latest NSS survey and clubbed districts accordingly. 2 Agricultural land productivity refers to the value of production per hectare, which is derived by dividing the value of production of 35 crops with the cropped area under 35 crops in each region.

realistic agricultural productivity index must therefore be based on the value of crop output and not simply on yield per unit area and areal strength of crops. In another study Shafi applied Enyedi's index to measure food-crop productivity in India (Shafi ). This index is very similar to the one used by Bhatia and therefore suf.

India’s contribution in world wheat production is %, compared to China’s %. Yield of India for wheat is kg/ha while China has kg/ha. India ranks fourth in Maize production with a yield of kg/ha. While USA ranks first with a yield of kg/ha. The reasons for Poor agriculture productivity are: 1.
