Economic Geography

This chapter presents a comprehensive review of the works done on contemporary themes in agricultural geography such as cropping pattern, crop combinations, crop diversifications, agricultural productivity and efficiency. Agricultural geographers have remained widely engaged with these themes largely because of their relevance at the local levels under the fast increasing international market pressures. That is why the scholars seem to have paid much more attention on producing local and regional level studies. Very few studies have been conducted on aspects like crop combinations, agricultural productivity. Also the role of urban generated processes in the transformation of cropping patterns and their influence on agricultural productivity in many parts of the country could not get due attention.

Keywords:   Cropping pattern, crop combinations, crop diversification, agricultural productivity/efficiency, foodgrains, cash crops, Rabi and Kharif crops, HYV seeds, agro-based activities
