Abstract:
An attempt has been made in this paper to examine the trends in area, production and yield of paddy, wheat and gram crops in selected districts viz., Raipur, Mahasamund, Dhamtari and Durg of Chhattisgarh plains as well the State and India as a whole. Since the main objective, it was also examined percentage changes in area, production and yield of these crops in relative terms. The study was completely based on 20 years of secondary time-series data during 2000-01 to 2019-20. The various parametric linear and non-linear trend models were tried to fit the data out of which statistically most suited parametric models were selected on the basis of adjusted . The findings revealed that the overall performance of paddy found satisfactory as the area, production and yield of paddy in all selected district, the Chhattisgarh State and India as a whole exhibit continuous increasing growth trend line which was highly contributed by per hectare output than by the increased in area. Whereas, the overall growth performance of wheat and gram was found poor in the selected districts of Chhattisgarh plains with few exceptions as well as in the State. Thus, the phenomenon of productivity improvement was greatly responsible for increase production of production of wheat and gram. In the study, overall, the production and yield of gram has decreased by more than proportionate of wheat. Wheat, Gram and other pulses crop deserves some attention in the State and need efforts to increase the area and productivity of these crops.
