Barriers Broken. Production Relations and Agrarian Change in South India

Athreya, Venkatesh B.; Djurfeldt, Göran LU and Lindberg, Staffan LU (1990)
Abstract
This book studies agrarian change and the factors which have the potential to control and direct the course of such change. Hence it deals with a fundamental issue which has a direct bearing on poverty.

Based on a survey of 367 agrarian households in South India, this book systematically compares two major ecotypes in Indian agriculture: rainfed cultivation and irrigated agriculture. The authors link this ecological analysis to class relations, technology, and patterns of agriarian change, especially after the Green Revolution. They then go on to compare land and labour relations, class structures, credit and usurious relations, and agricultural productivity in these two ecotypes.
