The information has been gathered from different auxiliary sources. Five decadal information of land usage and rate region covered by various food and non-food crops have been taken for this exploration. To examine the transient change in crop enhancement Herfindahl Index (HI) was utilized (Malik). During 1950-51 to 2014-15, the net region planted extensively expanded. The region under sugarcane, absolute sauces and flavors, all out leafy foods, all out oilseeds, complete filaments and grain crops have been expanded.
