Agricultural growth performance in West Bengal from 1985 to 1995 has been remarkable which was possible because of improvement in productivity growth of agricultural inputs particularly in summer paddy production. Does it mean that there is no scope of further increase in the productivity in agriculture of the State? Or do the farmers of West Bengal are efficient in allocating their resources for the optimum production of rice? This book finds that rice farmers of the State are not allocatively efficient and examines the degree or extent of inefficiency of the farmers by measuring the yield gap of rice. It also analyzes the important factors and issues related with the inefficiency and lastly it calculates the economic gain arising from the production efficiency under certain socio-economic constraints.
