This paper examines the characteristics of 100 low yield districts and some non-low yield districts to bring out the constraints on agricultural productivity in the 100 low yield districts. Section II of the paper provides a methodology for analysing the constraints on low yield districts. Data base and definitions of the variables are given in section III, while section IV describes the location and significance of the low yield districts. Section V analyses the constraints on agricultural productivity in the 100 low yield and some non-low yield districts and discusses the role of fertilisers and fixed capital in raising agricultural productivity. The last section presents the summary and conclusions.
