“Farm Management, Production, and Resource Economics" is an indispensable textbook that showcases the power of economic principles to explain and predict issues in the farm sector. The book focuses on efficient farm management, sustainable production techniques, and resource economics. The book is framed by the increasing need for farm managers to develop and follow a business plan. It is designed to teach the agriculturists of tomorrow, and emphasizes the strategic and operations aspects of managing a farm. Fundamental farm management decision principles, management functions and role of manger in production activities and managing scarce resources are covered in this all inclusive text. Rich illustrations and data-driven graphs enhance the learning experience and simplify complex concepts. At the end of the book objective questions are provided under appendices to assess the understanding of the students.

This textbook is not only based on the syllabus of the subject of “Farm Management, Production and Resource Economics” in B.Sc (Ag.) Hon. course offered in the State Agricultural Universities according to ICAR recommended V Dean Committee but also useful for Master's, PhD and other Management students. I believe students and agricultural professionals will definitely like to consult it as well as to improve the effectiveness, objectivity and success of their decisions.
