Abstract:
Agriculture is indispensible for the sustenance and growth of the Indian economy. On an average, about 70 per cent of the households and 10 per cent of the urban population is depended on agriculture as their source of livelihood. Total geographical area of India is 328.37 million hectares of which 305.27 million hectare is the reporting area. As of 2018, total sown area of kharif crops in India reached 105.78 million hectares. India ranks second worldwide in farm outputs. Indian yields per hectare of crops are generally low compare to international standards. The major crops grown in India are Rice, Wheat, Coarse cereals, pulses, oilseeds, sugarcane, cotton etc. The study was undertaken with the objective to analyse the compound growth rates of area, production & productivity of major crops of India. Study observed that the decline in area underrice because various reason such as farmers are sifting of other crops, increases cost of cultivation and decreasing the net return etc and CGR of production and yield are positive so increases of production in future while in case of course cereals, CGR of area is negative that is not good sign of India because coarse cereal is cultivated in drought region and unproductive land. If we want to area of coarse cereals increases that good package and practice is used in cultivation and high price declared of coarse cereals crops.
