FoThere are several studies which point out decline in agricultural productivity in developing countries even in the years well-known for success of Green Revolution. The modified Malmquist TFP index- using Sequential/ Long memory technology, as proposed by Forstner and Isaksson (2002) and Nin et al (2003), attempts to rectify the biases in computation of productivity growth arising from non-neutral technical change. This study uses non-parametric Sequential Malmquist TFP Index to estimate changes in total factor productivity in Indian agriculture at state-level.rstner Helmut and Isaksson Anders (2002), “Productivity, Technology, and Efficiency: An analysis of the world technology frontier when memory is infinite”, SIN Working Paper Series, Working Paper no. 7, February 2002, Statistics and Information Networks branch of UNIDO.
