It is a well known fact that with the existing level of available technology, India can easily double its agricultural production and productivity. However, what is preventing us from achieving the above production level is the lack of an efficient administrative organisation which can take the benefits of technological advances to the door steps of farmers. It is clear that the most important issue to be tackled with regard to agricultural development in India in the coming years is not the fabrication of new technologies but development of efficient organisations which will transfer the available technologies into production accomplishments. Thus there is a need for scientific study of organisations dealing with agricultural development. There are very few investigations on functioning of agricultural administration .The present study has been undertaken to analyse the structure, processes and functioning of agricultural administration of agriculturally developed and less developed states. Does the agricultural administration of developed state significantly differ from that of less developed state significantly differ from that of less developed state? If yes, in what dimensions? The present study provides answer to this question. The book, divided into eleven chapters, gives a comparative account of different organisational aspects of department of agriculture in a developed and a less developed states. The items discussed include organisational context, structure, processes, personnel policies, and effectiveness. The book will be of great use to the students, teachers and professionals concerned with development administration, agricultural extension management and transfer to technology. Printed Pages: 255.
