Abstract: Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) commonly known as gram or Bengal gram is the most important pulse crop of India which alone has nearly 75 percent of the world acreage and production of Gram. The present study is an attempt to evaluate the growth and instability of such important crop i.e. chickpea. For the present study, Amravati district from Maharashtra state was chosen purposively as area under chickpea is reported highest in this district. The study was based on secondary data pertained to the year i.e. 1994-95 to 2014-15. The result revealed that Chickpea is the most important pulse crop in Amravati district, the growth rate for area of production of chickpea were found significant. Instability studied in chickpea indicate, that productivity under chickpea exhibited more yield. It means that production of chickpea over the period has been almost high.
