Abstract or Summary
  • Importance of tenure structures is often ignored in agricultural development planning in India. Emphasis instead is commonly placed on agro-techniques for increasing productivity to meet the growing needs of food supply. To evaluate the affects of institutionalized tenure structure on agricultural efficiency, two pairs of contiguous districts from Madhya Pradesh, India, were chosen as case studies. The districts were selected in a manner that their similar physical environment acted as controls to the analysis while their institutionalized tenure systems differed in one being feudalistic and the other having a peasant proprietary background. Differences, pointed out in the livelihood classes and ownership structures between the feudal and the nonfeudal districts, present evidences of residual feudalistic tenure systems persisting in spite of land reform measures instituted by the state. Areal differences observed in farm practices, production` and yield patterns between the two districts suggest a higher efficiency level for the district with peasant proprietary background. Evaluation of differences in the utilization of the modern inputs and governmental services by different farm sizes suggests a greater degree of adoption of modern inputs by the district with the peasant proprietary background. Governmental services, however, were found to be more active in the district with the feudal background. The evidence suggests that because of little implementation of land reform, the lingering affects of feudalistic tenure systems are constraints on agricultural efficiency in district with feudal background.
