Rice Productivity Analysis in India

This publication was brought out by the Directorate of Rice Development, Patna on 10th Sep'2002. The objective is to present an analysis of the productivity of rice in different rice growing eco-systems. This was necessary as the efforts to improve productivity have been going on for quite some time now through various development programmes. One of the major programme in this direction was distribution of Seed Mini-Kits of latest developed high-yielding rice varieties to the cultivators through concerned State Dept. of Agriculture.  

This publication highlights the efforts to analyze the productivity of rice at state and district levels. The exercise also includes attempts at identifying possible reasons for low productivity in different rice growing zones. Suggestions have also been made to overcome the constraints of low productivity to the possible extent.
