Agriculture Diversification Problems And Perspectives by A.K. Sharma, Seema Wahab & Rashmi Srivastava
Poverty continues to persist in many countries throughout the world despite improvements in the global trade regime and significant enhancement in agricultural productivity through the green revolution technologies. To achieve the millennium goal of halving poverty by 2015, these people should be provided with alternative production opportunities that can generate new employment and enhance incomes.
