Reorienting Agriculture is a tour de force. It neatly encapsulates in one, well-structured volume, the entire array of India's impressive strides in improving its agriculture sector, while offering incisive commentary on how sustainable agriculture can deliver the next generation of development dividends to end hunger, malnutrition, poverty and environmental degradation in our lifetime. Using evidence-based approaches, the book's menu of policy reforms offers fresh insights on boosting productivity, revitalizing education, fighting climate change, and more. The book will find broad appeal among academicians, scientists, policy makers, business leaders, civil society and others who are working to grasp the opportunities for accelerating growth in India's farming sector and placing it on a pathway of environmental and social sustainability.
