Decomposition analysis and acreage response of pigeon pea in Amravati division


SG Ninawe, PP Baviskar, UP Gaware and AG Kadu

The present study entitled “Decomposition analysis and Acreage Response of Pigeon pea in Amravati division” was undertaken to study the growth rate and instability of area, production and productivity, decomposition of output growth, acreage response and price elasticity of selected crop i.e. Pigeon pea in Amravati division and data pertained for the year 1988-89 to 2017-18 for the districts viz., Buldhana, Akola, Amravati, Yavatmal and Amravati Division as a whole. The study was based on time series secondary data on area, production, productivity, farm harvest prices, rainfall and other relevant data of selected crops were collected from the various Government publications.
The study revealed that the compound growth rates for area were positive indicating increase in area of all the Pigeon pea growing districts during all three sub periods i.e. period-I and period-II, period-III and overall period in Amravati division. The instability in the area, production and productivity of pigeon pea was observed in almost all districts in the Amravati division. It may be because the crop largely depends on vagaries of nature which causes heavy losses. Percent contribution of area effect was more responsible for pigeon pea. Therefore it is necessary to increase the sustainable pigeon pea production in state and to take up productivity enhancing measures in pigeon pea crop like varietal improvement, appropriate technologies. The lagged acreage variable was found significant in all the districts of Amravati Division mostly with one percent level of significance. The current year acreage was less influenced by farm harvest prices of pigeon pea in all the districts. While, one year lagged yield had not at all showed impact to area allocation of pigeon pea. Most of the long run price elasticities were greater than short run elasticities in pigeon pea indicating that farmers were relatively market oriented in their decisions in long run than in short run.
