Abstract: This paper examines broad trends in agricultural output growth, food prices and the viability of cultivation over the period of liberalising economic reforms in India since the early 1990s. These trends are considered in relation to the current perceptions of agrarian crisis in India and the degree to which the economic liberalisation process may have contributed to this crisis. The relationship between patterns of cultivation and technological changes as well as environmental concerns is also highlighted.
