Growth and Distribution of Agrarian Assets in the Punjab

Moazam Mahmood


This is a micro study of the growth and distribution of non
land agrarian assets over time, in two villages of the Punjab.
Widespread adoption of the Green Revolution inputs, seed and fertilizer,
has generated a high rate of acquisition of agrarian assets, especially
tubewells and mechanisation. The HYV enhanced profitability and income
should have permitted an equally widespread acquisition of assets. This
study uses an exogenous-endogenous model to show two constraints on
asset acquisition.
