  • Recommendations

Research Project Title: An Economic Analysis of Groundnut Productivity Differentials in Saurashtra Region of Gujarat (2015-16).

  • Demand based crop-specific information about the cropping needs need to be intensified
  • The institutional credit adjusted to the prevailing inflation levels should be seriously implemented to take care of the escalating cost of production.
  • A mobile application needs to be developed catering to such crop-specific and location specific packages.

Research Project Title: Total Factor Productivity of Major Crops and Contribution of  Research Investment to Agricultural Growth in Gujarat (2016-17)

  • Proper management of agronomical practices to keep low production cost and proper price incentive are needed in the current agricultural scenario,        
  • To attain targeted agricultural growth, investments on agricultural research and extension education need to be increased at the rate of 5 per cent per annum to achieve an additional one per cent growth in TFP.

Research Project Title:  Export Performance of Marine Products from India

  • To overcome price risk and instability, export stabilization fund needs to be created in the marine sector. Sustained focus need to be given on value added marine products, which in turn can lead to diversification in products as well as of markets. For expanding growth and reducing instability index in marine products, the exporters may be facilitated to enter into long term contracts with the international buyers. India’s maritime export policy needs to focus big on multilateral negotiations to check the disproportionate or biased use of SPS or TBT measures.

Research Project Title: Performance and Price Discovery of Cotton in Spot and Futures Markets in India (2018-19).

  •            The efficiency of cotton based futures markets can be improved by increasing the participation of farmers in the futures market, developing futures market in the locality of spot markets, improving grading and standardization system and by managing the exchange-specific problems. All these issues can be tacked with the help of a four-pronged strategy viz. (i) creating large scale awareness among farmers by focusing on market-oriented extension services; (ii) mobilizing farmers under groups to pool their resources; (iii) decreasing the current lot size of cotton based futures contracts; and (iv)incentivizing and integrating e-NAM with futures trading components.
