Estimation of Demand Elasticity for Food Commodities in India AgEcon
Kumar, Praduman; Kumar, Anjani; Parappurathu, Shinoj; Raju, S.S..
The food demand in India has been examined in the context of a structural shift in the dietary pattern of its population. The results have reinforced the hypothesis of a significant diversification in the dietary pattern of households in recent years and has found stark differences in the consumption pattern across different income quartiles. The food demand behaviour has been explained using a set of demand elasticities corresponding to major food commodities. The demand elasticities have been estimated using multi-stage budgeting with QUAIDS model and another alternative model, FCDS. The study has revealed that the estimated income elasticities vary across income classes and are lowest for cereals group and highest for horticultural and livestock...

Exports of Livestock Products from India: Performance, Competitiveness and Determinants AgEcon
Kumar, Anjani.
The paper has examined temporal changes in the composition of livestock exports, assessed the export competitiveness of different livestock products and analysed the factors affecting the growth of livestock export. The performance of livestock export has been found noteworthy. The liberalization policy initiated in 1991 seems to have improved the performance of livestock exports. The study has revealed that India is competitive in export of meat products, except poultry. The export of buffalo meat has been increasing consistently and the poor domestic demand has further fuelled its export. But, the export of mutton does not seem to have much prospects in the short-run, as even the domestic demand is not being met by domestic production. In milk and milk...

Factor Demand, Output Supply Elasticities and Supply Projections for Major Crops of India AgEcon
Kumar, Praduman; Shinoj, P.; Raju, S.S.; Kumar, Anjani; Rich, Karl M.; Msangi, Siwa.
Policy planners face the challenge of formulating suitable agricultural policy by which the required growth in domestic production can be achieved. To attain effective food security policy, one needs reliable empirical knowledge about the degree of responsiveness of factor demand and output supply for commodities. This paper is an attempt in this direction and estimates the factor demand and output supply elasticity for major crops grown in India. These elasticities are used to project the domestic supply of major commodities, viz. rice, wheat, pulse grains, nine major edible oilseeds, and sugarcane under various scenarios with and without acreage expansion and TFP growth. The results of supply projections are compared with the food demand and policy...

Formal Milk Processing Sector in Assam: Lessons to be Learnt from Institutional Failure AgEcon
Sirohi, Smita; Kumar, Anjani; Staal, Steven J..
Assam initiated organised development of milk processing way back in the mid 1960s. The total installed capacity of pasteurisation and chilling plants in the State is 159 thousand and 28.5 thousand litres per day, respectively. The current scenario of the formal milk processing segment in the state is however, grim. The created infrastructure is either largely defunct or grossly under-utilized. The functional plants are operating at very low level of their installed capacity, have limited product profile, high returns of marketed milk, substantial handling and curdling losses, low productivity of capital and labour and huge operational losses. The poor performance of the plants has been attributed to the establishment of milk processing units without an...

Institutional Credit to Agriculture Sector in India: Status, Performance and Determinants AgEcon
Kumar, Anjani; Singh, K.M.; Sinha, Shradhajali.
The institutional credit has been conceived to play a pivotal role in the agricultural development of India. A large number of institutional agencies are involved in the disbursement of credit to agriculture. However, the persistence of money lenders in the rural credit market is still a major concern. In this backdrop, the present study has examined the performance of agricultural credit flow and has identified the determinants of increased use of institutional credit at the farm household level in India. The study based on the secondary data compiled from several sources, has revealed that the institutional credit to agriculture in real terms has increased tremendously during the past four decades. The structure of credit outlets has witnessed a...

Livestock Sector in North-Eastern Region of India: An Appraisal of Performance AgEcon
Kumar, Anjani; Staal, Steven J.; Elumalai, K.; Singh, Dhiraj Kumar.
Although agriculture is the prime source of livelihood for a majority of rural population in the North-Eastern region (NER) of India, dependence on livestock as an alternative source of income is significant. Responding to the burgeoning demand for livestock products in a sustainable manner is a big challenge. The widening gap between the demand and supply of livestock products can be met through bringing out changes in the production structure or opening up the international trade. In this context, an analysis of performance and factors influencing development of the livestock sector in NER has been carried out. The growth of livestock sector has been found slower in the NER than at the national level. However, a significant proportion of landless...

Milk Marketing Chains in Bihar: Implications for Dairy Farmers and Traders AgEcon
Kumar, Anjani.
The study has addressed the issues associated with the alternative milk market chains and their implications on dairy farmers and traders. It has been conducted in Bihar, where modern milk market chains especially the milk co-operatives have grown significantly. The study has shown that in spite of growing presence of modern milk supply chains, the traditional milk supply chain is still dominant. The empirical evidence does not appear to support the perceptions of exploitative nature of the traditional milk market agents. Traditional milk processing seems to offer good opportunities for the small and resource-poor milk producers and traders to enhance their income. The traditional milk sector should be addressed in a constructive manner and the policies...

Rural Employment Diversification in Eastern India: Trends and Determinants AgEcon
Kumar, Anjani.
The trends in rural employment diversification, especially within agriculture in the eastern states of India have been studied. The employment potential of different sub-sectors of agriculture has been assessed to provide succour to the ever increasing problem of unemployment. Several socio-economic factors affecting rural employment diversification towards non-farm sector and horticultural activities have been examined by using logit models. The contribution of different socio-economic variables on employment to non-farm sector and horticultural crops has been quantified by computing marginal effects of each variable. The study has suggested that for reducing entry barriers to non-farm employment opportunities, education and skill development will have to...

Rural Employment Diversification in India: Trends, Determinants and Implications on Poverty AgEcon
Kumar, Anjani; Kumar, Sant; Singh, Dhiraj Kumar; Shivjee.
This paper has studied rural employment diversification in India and across major states using NSSO data at household level for the period 1983 and 2009-10. Factors affecting rural employment diversification towards non-farm sector have also been studied. Analysis has shown that the non-farm sector has consistently grown over time and employed nearly one-third of the rural workforce in 2009-10, as compared to merely one-fifth in 1983 at all-India level. The similar trend is seen across major states as well, though the pace and pattern varied widely. In providing employment to rural workforce, increasing dominance of crop production, followed by animal husbandry was observed across major states during 2009-10. The share of fishery and forestry was...

Smallholder Dairy Farmers’ Access to Modern Milk Marketing Chains in India AgEcon
Kumar, Anjani; Staal, Steven J.; Singh, Dhiraj Kumar.
The smallholder dairy farmers’ access to modern milk marketing chain has been assessed in India by collecting data at the farm level in two states, viz. Bihar and Punjab. These states are among the largest milk producing states of the country but depict stark variations in terms of milk productivity and per capita milk availability. Another significant feature is the emergences of modern milk marketing chains in both the states. The study has shown that in spite of the growing presence of modern milk supply chains, the traditional milk supply chain is still dominant in the Indian milk market. Its presence is even more pronounced in less-developed states like Bihar. However, the traditional milk supply chain is being replaced, albeit slowly, with the...
