AGRICULTURAL CRISIS AND RURAL INDUSTRIALIZATION IN PUNJAB
Punjab is the most frequently quoted success story in the annals of agricultural development in India. Punjab state, comprising only 1.54 percent of total geographical area of the country now contributes 13-14 percent towards the total foodgrain production. The State has earned a name of ‘Granary of India’ by contributing 35-40 percent of rice and more than 40 percent of wheat to central pool in past two decades and transforming India from ‘Begging Bowl’ to ‘Bread Basket’. However one cannot draw rosy picture of state of agriculture in Punjab anymore. Agrarian crisis had penetrated deep into the agriculture of Punjab since 1980s after the green revolution lost its sustenance in the form of growing rural indebtedness, erosion of soil fertility and low water level etc. Thereby, rural industrialization will offer scope for removal of agrarian crisis.
