While analysing the mode of production in Indian agriculture it is necessary to do so based on the laws of capitalist production as discovered by Marx and further developed by Lenin. These Scientific laws of capitalism and imperialism are not time bound. They neither get out-dated nor change from country to country. The conditions may change in time and space but the basic laws of capitalism and imperialism remain unchanged. To understand the mode of production in India it is no use negating these laws, as the CRC does, but utilise them to understand the * mode of production in India.
Regarding the question of capitalism in agriculture and important principle outlined by Lenin was that, "It is the development of capitalism in the manufacturing industry that is the main force which gives rise to, and develops, capitalism in agriculture." The growth of commodity production in agriculture can be assessed by the extent of utilisation of inputs and the growth of outputs produced for the market. The 'green revolution', which was introduced by the World Bank in Third World countries in the mid-1960s, was part of the imperialist policy to penetrate the countryside for markets. This 'green revolution' has led to certain changes in agriculture which must be analysed.
