Abstract

Given an agrarian structure characterised by a high degree of concentration of land and non-land resources with a minority of holdings, output and marketable surplus may be expected to show, to a greater or lesser degree, similar concentration. This article seeks to examine this hypothesis estimating the relative contribution of different groups of cultivators to the gross value of output from agriculture and to the marketable surplus. The results of the study are broadly in line with the above hypothesis and run counter to the finding of Dharm Narain that holdings below 15 acres contributed more than one-half and those below 10 acres nearly one-half of the total marketable surplus.
