Anupama Jain, Dr. RM Sahu and Yogita Kashyap
The present investigation relates to different agro climatic regions of Chhattisgarh, where paddy is the competing crop to other kharif crops. The entire Chhattisgarh state is studied, considering its three agro climatic zones which includes 18 districts of Chhattisgarh (At present 27 districts, have merged and made 18 districts) as units of Investigation. Secondary data collected from different sources were used for the research work, for the period 2000-01 to 2014-15. Paddy is the principal crop in Chhattisgarh and along with paddy, maize and wheat are also studied in this investigation, so as to know the position of these crops at present as compared to paddy. This study examines the trend using linear and exponential model for three major cereal crops paddy, maize and wheat and assess its variation in area, production and productivity. Efforts should also be made to intensify cereal crop production especially in those agro climatic regions where the productivity levels at present is poor.
