Debasish Mondal, Swarup De
The paper makes an attempt to estimate the nature of growth, break and fluctuation of productivity of total foodgrain in Assam as compared to all India, in the period 1950-51 to 2009-10. Breaks in the growth paths have been evaluated by the modified Bai-Perron methodology and fluctuations around the growth path have been decomposed into year to year fluctuation and cyclical fluctuation by using modified Cuddy-Della Valle and modified Coppock methodologies. The entire research work is based on secondary data of productivity of total foodgrain in India collected from “Directorate of Economics and Statistics”, Ministry of Agriculture, and different issues of Statistical Abstract, Govt. of India.
