DEBATES ABOUT PUBLIC EXPENDITURE IN THE AGRICULTURAL SECTOR HAVE RE-OPENED IN MANY DEVELOPING AND EMERGING ECONOMIES BECAUSE OF HIGH BUDGET DEFICITS AND CHANGES IN PUBLIC OPINION. AS A RESULT, AGRICULTURAL POLICY IN MANY OF THESE COUNTRIES IS BEGINNING TO TAKE A MORE MARKET-ORIENTED APPROACH TO AGRARIAN PROBLEMS: MOST NOTABLY THROUGH THE INTRODUCTION OF CONTRACT FARMING. THIS BOOK EXPLORES THE POLICY ISSUES AROUND CONTRACT FARMING, ITS TRANSFORMATIVE POTENTIAL, AND ADDRESSES THE LACK OF EMPIRICAL RESEARCH ON THIS TOPIC BY FOCUSING ON SOUTH ASIA: PRINCIPALLY INDIA, BANGLADESH AND NEPAL.THE BOOK FIRST ADDRESSES THE EFFECTS OF CONTRACT FARMING (VERTICAL COORDINATION) ON PRODUCTIVITY, FOOD SECURITY INDICATORS (YIELD, CONSUMPTION EXPENDITURES, PRICES) EMPLOYMENT, AND INPUT USAGE. THEN IT DRAWS LESSONS FROM THE SOUTH ASIAN CASE STUDIES ON THE IMPACT OF INSTITUTIONAL CHANGES, LIKE CONTRACT FARMING, ON INCOME AND FOOD SECURITY OF SMALLHOLDER HOUSEHOLDS. THE CORE OF THE BOOK WILL INCLUDE CASE STUDY CHAPTERS ON SEVERAL COMMODITIES THAT ARE PRODUCED UNDER CONTRACT FARMING, INCLUDING VEGETABLES AND FISHERIES IN BANGLADESH, LOW-VALUE CROPS IN NEPAL, AND COFFEE IN INDIA. FURTHER CHAPTERS ALSO EXPLORE CONTRACTS, STORAGE, INPUT USAGE AND TECHNICAL EFFICIENCY IN THESE CASES.THIS BOOK SERVES AS AN ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO ACADEMICS, RESEARCHERS, STUDENTS, LEGISLATIVE LIAISONS, AND THINK TANK GROUPS INTERESTED IN AGRARIAN ISSUES, AGRICULTURAL ECONOMICS, AND AGRICULTURAL POLICY IN EMERGING ECONOMIES, AND SOUTH ASIA IN PARTICULAR.
