Abstract

Despite having rich mineral and biotic resources with some of India’s most industrialized cities, Jharkhand is amongst the third poorest state in India. The rural economy is dominated by smallholder rain-fed farming and use of extensive common property resources. In this paper, an attempt is made to identify the constraints of the farming system and suggest the technical, economic and institutional strategies for sustainable and inclusive development. Such an analysis will help in taking policy decisions for the objectives of achieving higher level of regional food production, maximisation of production and income to the farmers.
