Résumé partiel
Present study is an attempt to look into the issues in food-population relationship and its dynamism over the years. Historically, the debate concerning food-population balance came into lime light with the publication of much discussed Malthus ‘An Essay on the Principle of Population’. As per Malthusian doctrine the power of population is infinitely greater than the power of land to grow. Therefore, food supply in Malthusian vision is considered as the power of regulating population size. Slightly, contrary to this Beserupean ideology explains that unless population increases the adoption of new agricultural technique is highly unlikely. In recent times, debate concerning food-population has many offshoots ranging from Neo-Malthusian, Medows Limit to Growth, to needs to achieve Millennium Development Goals more recently. All these off-shoots are trying to arrest changes in population in respect to changing agriculture and vice-versa. On the same lines, present thesis is an attempt to look into the behaviour of agriculture and population under changing socio-economic scenario. This thesis is based on varied data sources collected from secondary as well as from random sampling based field survey. Among secondary sources Census of India and data obtained from Ministry of agriculture, government of India has served as chief data source. In terms of primary data, field survey was conducted based on Agro-climatic regions. Data obtained from varied sources than put to some statistical technique and results were shown through appropriate cartographic method.
