Does farm level diversification improve household dietary diversity? Evidence from Rural India

Using data from a nationally representative survey of farm households in India we identify a causal link between dietary-diversity and farm level diversification. Propensity score matching techniques show that households which exclusively grow cereals (our treatment-group) consume significantly less diverse diet compared to those who grow both cereals and other crop-groups (our control-group). Various matching rules have been used to check for robustness of our results.
