About the Book

This book examines the functioning of the dual grain market with reference to rice and wheat and traces the answer of better policy option for raising food output between investment in irrigation and fertiliser subsidy. This is done by carrying out the following three simulations: What is the impact of a 10 per cent hike in fertiliser prices? What is the impact of 1 per cent increase in irrigated acreage? What is the combined impact of the two above?
