Abstract:
The production pattern as well as its consumption pattern has dramatically changed in India in the recent past. However, the average crop yield of 2.5 t/ha is still very low as compared to the other Asian countries like Bangladesh (6.8 t/ha), China (5.7 t/ha), Indonesia (4.6 t/ha) and Pakistan (3.8 t/ha) in 2012 (FAOSTAT, 2013) [5]. This paper has examined the growth in area, production and productivity of maize in Haveri district of Karnataka. An attempt has also been made to study the constraints faced by farmers in production and marketing of maize in the study area. In all, 60 farmers were selected from Hirekerur and Shiggaov taluks of Haveri district in Northern Karnataka. The data related to the agricultural year 2017-18 was taken for the present study and primary data was collected from personal interview method with the help of pre-tested schedule. Compound Annual Growth Rate Analysis and Garrett’s ranking technique were used to analyze for the data analysis. The results showed that maize area and production were positive growth rate of 6.49 and 5.19, percent respectively. In the case of production of maize, it was observed that frequent occurrence of drought ranked I, which recorded a Garrett mean score of 73.38 while in the case of marketing of maize, location of markets at for off places ranked I, which recorded a Garrett mean score of 72.23.
