Management of Environmental Quality
Article publication date: 12 March 2018
The purpose of this paper is to provide quantitative analysis of the extant literature on farmer distress resulting from agricultural credit and identify research gaps.
The authors have used the citation analysis which is based on the citation graph. For the current study, the authors have used SCOPUS database.
The study reveals that the farmer distress is one of the social sustainability issues which have attracted major attentions from academia. Most of the studies in recent years are from South Asian perspectives and the extant literature focusing on some of the important issues like farmer challenges and pesticide poisoning. Most of the studies provide anecdotal evidences. Hence, the empirical research is scant.
The study is an attempt to provide an in-depth analysis, so that future research directions can be formulated.
