Abstract:
Agriculture is an exceptional sector of Indian economy. On an average, about 57 per cent of the households and 10 per cent of the urban population is depended on agriculture as their source of livelihood. The country faced a problem of rapidly growth in population and lower growth in food grains. The government of India decides target for major crops production in India. Some time production remains under target and sometime achieves the target. The study was undertaken with the objective to analyse the gap between target and achievement of production of major crops of India. The secondary data was used for study and analyzed by simple tabular method. Find out the target was under achievement (minimum) 77.23 per cent in 2002-03 while the achievement was 104.60 per cent more than target of production of rice in 1999-2000. The target was under achievement (minimum) 84.31 per cent in 2002-03 while the achievement was 112.95 per cent more than target of production of wheat in 2011-12. The target was under achievement (minimum) 77.84 per cent in 2009-10 while the achievement was 110.59 per cent more than target of production of coarse cereals in 2003-04. The target was under achievement (minimum) 69.56 per cent in 2002-03 while the achievement was 110.55 per cent more than target of production of pulses in 2010-11. The target was under achievement (minimum) 65.86 per cent in 2000-01 while the achievement was 105.65 per cent more than target of production of oil seed in 2013-14. The target (minimum) was under achievement 73.08 per cent in 2003-04 while the achievement was 131.67 per cent more that target of production of sugarcane in 2006-07.
