Publisher: Indian Journal of Agricultural Economics

This paper examines the trend and pattern of diversification of the crop sector in West Bengal during the period 1980-81 to 2009-10. In this context, the paper examines the impact of crop diversification on agricultural output growth in West Bengal. We also look into the sources of growth of the crop sector that accounts for about 80 per cent of the total value of agricultural output in West Bengal. The factors contributing to diversification of the cropping pattern are also examined.
