      The Bengal famine of (Bengali: pônchasher mônnôntôr) was a famine in the Bengal province of British India during World War estimated –3 million, out of a population of million, died of starvation, malaria, or other diseases aggravated by malnutrition, population displacement, unsanitary conditions and lack of health care.. Millions were impoverished as Country: British India. Ambitious crops are grown in the states of Assam, West Bengal and Odisha. The three crops of paddy grown in the states of Assam, West Bengal and Odisha are Aus, Aman and Boro. Apart from that, you can also find different types of other crops in these states such as rice, maize, jower, bajra, cotton, jute and groundnut.

        West Bengal produces about million tonnes of paddy each year across the three seasons; that include aus, aman and boro. The kharif paddy (aus and aman) output accounts for about 70 per cent. growth during the s and the first half of the s. The purpose of this paper is to address these concerns. First, we perform a more disaggregated analysis of the effects of the tenancy reform in West Bengal on yields at the farm level, controlling for farm fixed effects. This allows us to separately estimate impacts.

Out of districts, books for key districts are available. District Level Information of All Districts (West Bengal).

Downloadable. In this paper, we attempt to analyse the changes in paddy productivity growth in West Bengal and Orissa during eighties and early nineties. Results reveal that input productivity has played an important role in the agricultural growth performance in the eighties and early nineties in these states.

While this productivity growth has been brought about through. sources of agricultural productivity growth in orissa ha in rabi) with higher variability (Coef cient of variation for kharif paddy is 24% against 7 % for rabi paddy) in productivity.
