Abstract:
The green revolution technology succeed in transforming the country from a large food importer and beneficiary of food aid in the 1950s and 1960s, to a food secure country. Instability in farm production was main concern during green revolution period and removed by using high yielding varieties, irrigation facilities and other risk management strategies. The paper has estimated the instability of wheat and rapeseed mustard at national level and then has compared it with Haryana state for the period of 1966-67 to 2016-17. The overall period divided in four periods acc. to reforms separately and also analyzed jointly. The overall scenario provided clear picture about instability and accomplished that instability was very high in case of rapeseed mustard as compared to wheat irrespective of rabi crops both. In case of wheat, variations in yield were much larger than area and production. But in case of rapeseed mustard, more instability found in the pattern of production.
