Abstract:
Soybean, (Glycine max), also called soja bean or soya bean, annual legume of the pea family Fabaceae (Legumonosae). The “king of beans” is mostly crushed into soy oil and meal and is found in hundreds of edible and non-edible products, ranging from cooking oil, animal grains, milk and vegan food to biodiesel and industrial applications. Investigation was carried out for the period from 2000-01 to 2019-20 in order to estimate the “Growth rates in area, production and productivity of soybean in Marathwada region of Maharashtra state”. The growth in the area, production and productivity of soybean was estimated by using the compound growth function of the linear trend equation. The study analyzed growth rate over initial for area, production and productivity of soybean in Marathwada region of Maharashtra and observed an increased during the study period i.e 90.59 per cent 94.19 per cent and 0.20 per cent for overall period, respectively per annum. The CDVI for area, production and productivity of soybean of Maharashtra was 14.22, 45.87 and 35.70, for overall period respectively.
The increase in production of soybean in Marathwada region of Maharashtra was due to the increase acreages under soybean crop and little due to increase in productivity of soybean. It was revealed that, farmers in Marathwada region are gradually switching over to soybean from cotton, jowar, tur and other traditional crops due to higher yield, easy crop husbandry and remunerative price for soybean due to high demand for oil, animal feed and industrial products. Efforts should be made to improve the productivity of soybean in order to increase soybean production in Maharashtra state.
