Abstract

Background To measure the extent of regional differences are in agricultural development of various districts in Tamil Nadu.
Methodology: This study is entirely based on the secondary sources of data and it has brought into the analysis of two different periods of time in the year 2008-09 and 2017-18 with the help of Composite Indices (CI) and Development Indices (DI) analysis. In addition, the study areas have taken 31 out of 38 districts and the rest of the districts recently split into administrative purpose. Rest of Districts considered as outliers due to insufficient database.
Result and Discussion: Extensive disproportion in the level of agricultural development has been observed in different districts. The northern and north-eastern part of the state was found to be highly developed whereas some of the western and southern districts of Tamilnadu were low developed. While compared with the results of the composite index of development in two benchmark years, the districts of Villupuram and The Nilgiris persistently have a high and least in the level of agricultural development respectively based on the selected indicators.
Conclusion: This research paper has a efficient impact to measuring the degree of regional differences in the level of agricultural development and classifies districts of Tamil Nadu into three categories like High Level Developed Districts (HLDD), Middle Level Developed Districts (MLDD) and Low Level Developed Districts (LLDD) based on their agriculture composite indices of Tamilnadu.. Additionally, the study is that it takes more districts than previous studies, virtually 82 percent of the districts in Tamil Nadu and it covers the most recent time.
