Abstract:
A study was carried out to identify the efficient cropping zones of major field crops in 27 districts of Chhattisgarh. The data with reference to the area, production and productivity of the major field crops (Rice, Maize, Pigeon Pea, Wheat and Chickpea) for 8 years (2011-12 to 2018-19) were collected from the directorate of economics and statistics, Government of Chhattisgarh. Two indices viz Relative Spread Index (RSI) and Relative Yield Index (RYI) were computed and the potential cropping districts for the study crops were identified. In Chhattisgarh, out of 27 districts 4, 7, 4, 5 and 2 districts were found as a MECZ for Rice, Maize, Pigeon Pea, Wheat and Chick Pea, respectively. Similarly among 27 districts of the state 4, 3, 11 and 13-13 districts are fall under ECZ for Rice, Maize, Pigeon Pea and Wheat, Chick Pea, respectively. In Chhattisgarh, out of 27 districts 5-5 and 3-3 districts were found as a LECZ for Rice, Maize, Wheat and Pigeon Pea, Chick Pea, respectively. Similarly among 27 districts of the state 15, 12, 4 and 9-9 districts are fall under NECZ for Rice, Maize, Wheat and Pigeon Pea, Chick Pea, respectively.
