English abstract

Opines that scientific planning for agricultural development to overcome backwardness is very important for India. Speedy and sustainable agricultural development is tied closely to effective planning which in turn rests heavily on information available for the process. Information specifically related to this area is classified under agricultural economics. This makes information systems on agricultural economics very crucial in the context of increasing requirement for food grains as well as globalization. Examines the coverage of agricultural economics, nature of information on the area, and the importance of technical and marketing information to managers, farmers and other stakeholders to take maximum advantage of the WTO Regime. Examines in detail the resources, facilities and services of information units of organizations dealing with agricultural economics in the region and the provisions for resource sharing between them. Reveals that information resources available in total are sufficient, but that at individual institutions are not adequate, full or reliable. Recommends a resource-sharing programme for institutions concerned with agricultural economics.
