Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New Delhi Oxford University Press 2007Description: xxi, 92 p.ISBN: 9780195685930.Subject(s): Horticulture | Horticulture--IndiaDDC classification: 635 Summary: "India is a large, low cost agricultural producer. Yet its share in global agriculture exports is insignificant and its domestic market is protected. In global trade negotiations, India's efforts have been directed more towards retaining the right to protect than towards eliminating distortions at home and abroad. The study seeks a solution to this puzzle by examining the horticulture sector, one of the most dynamic segments of Indian agriculture and international trade. It undertakes an integrated analysis of the sector - from farm to retail - based on primary surveys of farmers, agents, and exporters across fifteen different Indian states."" ""This report will be of interest to policymakers, trade negotiators, trade analysts, aid institutions, NGOs, and readers interested in trade and development. Students, teachers, and researchers in development economics and agriculture will also find it a useful resource."
