The book depicts status and performance of centrally sponsored agricultural schemes in India, called "Macro Management of Agricultural Schemes" that covers 17 sub-schemes of agriculture in India, focusing mainly on the development of rice, wheat, coarse cereals, farm mechanization, watershed development, etc. The scheme was made operational from 2001 in all the states and Union Territories (UTs). It was formulated to ensure that Central assistance is spent on focused areas and specific interventions that have been made for the development of agriculture across the states in the country. The MMA scheme has brought about tangible benefits for farmers and made a tremendous impact on agriculture in the country. Still, the scheme has lot of scopes for improvement, if the delivery mechanism of the scheme is strengthened.
