Author(s):

Abstract:
Soybean, one of the most economically important crops in Madhya Pradesh, because of the erratic behavior of climatic factors, is in danger of losing its resilience. Thus, research was conducted to ascertain the risk associated with its production. The results of which revealed that the state as a whole lies in a low instability zone for area and production under crop while in a medium instability zone for productivity. The compound growth rate (CGR) for the area (1.8%), production (2.4%), and productivity (0.60%) of the soybean crop in the state were positive but it is insignificant for production and productivity. The majority of the districts under the study have shown more years in which the yield of soybean was less than the mean yield. While based on the Sustainable Yield Index (SYI) method districts having the most sustainable yield covered a 68.69% area and production of 70.92%.
