Regional Agricultural Underdevelopment in Pakistan

Mohammad Aslam Chaudhary

Abstract


In this study an attempt has been made to analyse regional
agricultural growth in Pakistan in the light of the regional spread of
the Green Revolution and its impact on productivity and output growth of
this sector. The regional inequality in the spread of the Green
Revolution can lead to several other inequalities and it may cause
social and economic problems, for example, inequality in income, social
tension and political unrest. Therefore, its study is important. Our
main focus of the study is to identify linkages between the regional
spread of the Green Revolution and increase in productivity in the
agriculture sector. Such an inequality in the growth of agriculture
could also be a source of relative under development of a certain
region. To study such events and for comparison, an analysis of all the
regions of Pakistan has been carried out. Table 1, shows inequality in
the growth of agriculture in Pakistan and in its regions since 1960-61
to 1990-91.
