For analyzing the production performance of major vegetable crops in Rajasthan the current study was conducted from 2000-01 to 2019-20. The entire study period was divided into three sub-periods viz., Period-I (2000-01 to 2009-10), Period II (2010-11 to 2019-20), and Overall Period (2000-01 to 2019-20). Three major vegetables such as tomato, onion and potato (TOP) were considered for the analysis. The necessary secondary data on the area, production and productivity was gathered from several publications of state government. The study was done by analyzing the growth rate and instability using analytical tools such as Compound Annual Growth Rate, Instability Index (Cuddy-Della-Valle Index). All TOP crops showed higher growth rates in productivity during period-II in Rajasthan. Area under onion and potato revealed higher growth rates during period-I except tomato, which showed negative growth. Potato showed significant and positive growth rates during all the periods, also it revealed 19.9% growth rate in production which was highest compared to other crops. Tomato was more stable crop compared to onion and potato in the state. Instability in onion was due to shifting of farmers towards HYV and volatility in market price.
