This in turn led to increased seasonal and permanent migration, primarily from Eastern India.4 But it also led to the use of more tractors and threshers by Punjab farmers. The combined effect of these developments was a decline in real wages after 1972-73, which brought them closer to the stagnant real wages in the rest of India's agriculture.
This time lag cannot be explained by lack of engineering knowledge in Europe: the same countries were using mechanical threshers for virtually all their crops and seed drills had already been widely adopted. The difference was that labor was more abundant in Europe, farms were smaller, and the harvesting machines were therefore not profitable.
