Statistics for Information Intensive Agriculture.
This paper proposes that productivity growth in rain fed agriculture is possible with more intensive use of available information. This may be a way out of the productivity plateau experienced since the green revolution. Some illustrative examples are discussed to spell out the ideas. This is intended more to help students of statistics understand their subject as a tool of development, rather as a ready device to be put into immediate practice.Open preprint
