Punjab Agriculture was an undisputed leader in the times of Green Revolution in India and the Punjabi farmer was acclaimed worldwide. But today, Punjab Agriculture no longer calls the shots nor does it play the leadership role that others want to emulate. The Punjab agriculture sector has reached a point where it must make significant changes if it wants to move forward and regain its leadership role. The major question that faces Punjab agriculture is ‘Will Punjab be the Kohinoor of Indian States?’ The answer is no if the state does not rationalize incentives, create new institutions and reinvigorate old ones and increase investments significantly. The answer could be yes if bold and wide ranging policy reforms are undertaken.
