Title: Information resources on agricultural economics: A study with special reference to Kerala
Authors: Nair, R. Raman
Issue Date: Sep-2007
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: Opines that scientific planning for agricultural development to overcome backwardness is very important for India. Speedy and sustainable agricultural development is tied closely to effective planning which in turn rests heavily on information available for the process. Information specifically related to this area is classified under agricultural economics. This makes information systems on agricultural economics very crucial in the context of increasing requirements for food grains as well as globalization. Examines the coverage of agricultural economics, nature of information on the area, and the importance of technical and marketing information to managers, farmers and other stakeholders to take maximum advantage of the WTO Regime. Examines in detail the resources of information units of organizations dealing with agricultural economics in the region and the provisions for resource-sharing between them. Reveals that information resources available collectively are sufficient, but that at individual institutions are not adequate, full or reliable. Recommends a resource sharing programme for institutions concerned with agricultural economics.
