Abstract:
Agricultural production depends on large number of pre sowing and post-harvest factors like - cropping system, irrigation system, fertilizers, electricity, roads etc. Voluminous secondary data on such inputs is published by Uttar Pradesh Government and Government of India. The time series data pertaining to the period from 1997-98 to 2016-17 on area, production and productivity of different crops i.e. Rice, Wheat and Gram, have been used to study the general profile of U.P. These time series data have been procured from the Bulletins of Directorate of Agricultural Statistics and Crop-Insurance, Krishi Bhawan, Lucknow, Government of Uttar Pradesh and Statistical tools such as regional total and moving average used for determining the area, production and productivity of food grain crops in Bundelkhand region of U.P. Highest area (583130 ha), production (515116 mt) and productivity (11.48286 qtl/ha) of gram obtained during the period of 2002-03, 2001-02 and 2012-13 respectively, and minimum area (362432 ha) i.e. same area during the periods of 2014-15 to 2016-17.Highest area (98617 ha), production (161045 mt) and productivity (23.03 qtl/ha) of rice observed during the period of 2001-02, 2013-14 and 2016-2017respectively; And minimum area (59672 ha) in 2009-10, production (44408 mt) and productivity (5.642857 qtl/ha) in 2007-08. Highest area (925901) of wheat during the periods of 2014-15 to 2016-17, highest production (2802406) and productivity (29.79714) in 2016-17;and minimum area (635966), production (1025237) in 2007-08 and productivity (15.04143) of wheat in 2007-08. Present study pertaining in 2019-20 in titled General Scenario on area, production and productivity of major food grain crops in Bundelkhand region of U.P.
