Abstract:
Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand are the most important states for rice production of the country. It is necessary to study the growth pattern and instability of rice production in these states. Therefore the present study was conducted to examine the growth rate and instability in area, production and yield of rice in Uttar Pradesh including Uttarakhand state. The data was collected for the years 1990-91 to 2019-20 from Directorate of Economics and Statistics, Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Government of India. The data has been classified into four periods for analysis. Compound annual growth rate and Cuddy-Della Valle Instability index have been computed for the four periods. A new approach has been proposed for classification of instability values under five classes. These classes are very low instability, low instability, medium instability, high instability and very high instability. Highest growth rate for area and production was recorded in Agra district during period I (1990-91 to 1999-2000) and for yield it was observed in Sonbhadra district during the same period. For the state as a whole, the growth rate for area, production and yield was positive for all the periods except in period II where it was observed negative. The growth rate for most of the districts were positive for yield during period I (1990-91 to 1999-2000), III (2010-11 to 2019-20) and IV (1990-91 to 2019-20). The instability for area varies from 0.36 to 71.35 percent, instability for production was varied between 0.84 to 62.80 percent and instability for yield of rice varies from1.25 to 25.24 percent across the districts during the four periods. Most of the districts recorded low instability and very low instability for area, production and yield during all the periods.
