Abstract:
Agriculture is the chief occupation in Odisha. The most commonly grown oilseeds in Odisha are groundnut, mustard, sesame, sunflower etc. The study of growth and variability in area, yield and production of oilseeds is very important for effective planning and strategy formulation. The study is based on secondary source of data on area, production and yield of oilseed crops for rabi season in the districts of Odisha from the period 1993-94 to 2016-17. The compound growth rate and Coppock’s instability index are used as a measure of growth and instability of area, yield and production of rabi oilseeds. Also the districts of Odisha are ranked on basis of compound growth rate and Coppock’s instability index of area, yield and production of rabi oilseeds. The compound growth rate of yield of rabi oilseeds in Odisha is positive and significant due to which the compound growth rate of production of rabi oilseeds is significantly positive despite of significantly negative compound growth rate in area under of rabi oilseeds. Growth rate of area and yield of rabi oilseeds should be enhanced by increasing the chances of assured irrigation and by adopting improved cultivation practices.
