Abstract

Agricultural development in West Bengal during the post-Green Revolution period is associated with diverse changes in cropping pattern. Cropping pattern in terms of acreage allocation has changed largely in favour of boro rice, potato and mustard. The changes in cropping pattern may be due to various reasons. This present paper tries to analyse the basic reason behind the relatively rapid growth of those crops.
