Abstract:
The present analysis was undertaken to estimate the growth and instability of area, production and productivity of sweet orange in India and Maharashtra. The Compound Annual Growth rate and Cuddy Della Vella Index was used to estimate growth of instability of sweet orange. The growth rate of production of sweet orange in India was increased positively and significantly due to the expansion in area. The production of sweet orange was increased significantly and positively in the Wardha district because of both area expansion and productivity improvement. While the growth rate of output in the Aurangabad, Nagpur, and Akola districts was positive and significant during the time, this was attributable to the expansion of the sweet orange area. The production in the districts of Nagpur and Akola was found to be significant yet negative. The growth rates of area, production, and productivity was significant but negative in the districts of Nasik, Osmanabad, and Satara. Medium level of instability in area, production and productivity of sweet orange was observed in the regions of Maharashtra and similar results were observed for the state of Maharashtra. So, government needs to allocate the substantial funds for public research to stabilize the area and production of sweet orange fruit crop.
