Author(s): Aryama Bharti and Urmila Bhagat
Abstract: The present paper analyses district and regional level disparity in agriculture development in Chhattisgarh on a number of various parameters for the year 2001, 2001 1nd 2017-2018. The Regional disparity was assessed to examine whether all the districts are similar with respect to ecology, economy and social equity. The Kruskal-Wallis technique is used to test the null hypothesis that whether a regional disparity exists in Chhattisgarh concerning the level of sustainable agricultural development or not. The value of H (6.39, 9.63 and 7.70) was very significant respectively for the difference in sustainable agricultural development in the years 2001, 2011 and 2017-18. That clearly showed that Chhattisgarh districts have regional inequalities. Due to unequally scattered resource base and different climatic conditions in different areas, the state experiences district development inequalities in terms of ecology, economy and equity, hence a holistic development plan must be incorporated which bridges these gaps and leads to overall development in the state.
