International trade and food security: the future of Indian agriculture.

Book cover for International trade and food security: the future of Indian agriculture.

Description

This book presents recent work on demand and supply projections for food grains and high-value agri-food commodities in India. It projects the implications of policies and trade on farm and non-farm incomes, poverty and income distribution in rural and urban areas. It also looks at the future potential for international trade of agricultural commodities and its implications on food security and poverty. Fifteen chapters are presented in six parts focusing on (1) the main features of Indian agriculture in the changing global context; (2) a range of demand-supply projections for food commodities; (3) the emergence of the livestock sector in India's trade; (4) agricultural policies and their implications on food consumption and supply; (5) the importance of high-value commodities and the rise of modern markets; and (6) the way forward, including recommendations to strengthen the agricultural sector.
