Abstract

The present chapter analyses the supply response of chickpea and pigeon pea, using dynamic panel data estimation technique. The analysis is undertaken based on a district-level panel data collected from four major pulses producing states of India from 2005 to 2015.

Apart from Sugarcane for which FRP is declared by the Department of Food &Public Distribution, twenty two crops covered under MSP are Paddy, Jowar, Bajra, Maize, Ragi, Arhar, Moong, Urad, Groundnut-in-shell, Soyabean, Sunflower, Seasamum, Nigerseed, Cotton, Wheat, Barley, Gram, Masur (lentil), Rapeseed/Mustardseed, Safflower, Jute and Copra.

Although two-step estimation of the GMM-SYS is asymptotically more efficient, its limitation is that the reported standard errors are too small, i.e. downward biased (Blundell &Bond, 1998; Windmeijer, 2005).

Market price support is calculated by taking the difference between applied administered price and fixed external reference price multiplied by the quantity eligible for support price. In India applied administered price refers to MSP and quantity eligible to receive the support price refers to the quantity procured at given MSP.
