Research Highlights

(a) Applied Research

    Development of suitable sample survey methodologies for estimation of various parameters in crops,
    livestock, fisheries production and allied fields have always been one of the most important activities
    of the Institute from the very beginning. The Institute was instrumental in the development of sample
    survey methodology for :

  • Crop production estimation through crop cutting approach which formed a sound objective
    method of estimating crop production in the country

  • Estimation of livestock numbers, products and attendant practices

  • Extent of cultivation and production of fruits and vegetables

  • Estimation of plantation crops like arecanut, coconut, cashewnut

  • Estimation of fish catch both from marine and inland resources

  • Estimation of cost of production of crops as well as livestock products

  • Evaluation studies such as assessment of development programmes like IADP, HYVP, dairy
    improvement programmes, etc. were other important contributions of the Institute

  • Most of the methodologies evolved are being adopted for estimation of respective
    commodities by the concerned departments in the various states and this work is being
    coordinated by the Directorate of Economics and Statistics and other concerned Wings
    of the Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India.Some of these methodologies have
    been internationally used
