''Crop choices in Indian agriculture: Role of market access and price policy''
 
 
Abstract Following recent innovations in methodology for measuring market access, this paper assesses the influence of market access and price policy on crop choices in Indian agriculture. It finds that locations with greater market access specialize in less risky crops, away from pulses and oilseeds towards cereals and vegetables. Further, it establishes, a widely discussed but not empirically probed relationship, that cereal-centric price policy attenuates the effects of market access on crop choices.
