Abstract: This study attempts to analyse the extent of intra-industry trade (IIT) in India’s agricultural trade. This study showed that the agricultural trade between India and its two major trading partners, the USA and European Union, was mainly inter-industry in nature. However, there was a mild tendency for IIT to increase during the period of 2000–2008. The marginal intra-industry trade calculated for trade between both the partners indicated that the export was expanding at the cost of imports.

Keywords: marginal trade; agricultural products; USA; EU; European Union; India; United States; bilateral trade; trading partners; inter-industry trade; exports; imports; agriculture; farming; food; economics; business research; intra-industry trade.
