Abstract:
The present investigation emphasizes growth and instability of chickpea in Maharashtra. The time series data on area, production and productivity of chickpea was collected from various published sources viz., i) Season and crop reports, Departments of Agriculture, Government of Maharashtra, Pune, (ii) Statistical Abstract of Maharashtra State, Directorate of Economics and Statistics, Government of Maharashtra, Mumbai, (iii) Epitomes of Agriculture in Maharashtra, Part–II (iv) Socio- economic Review and District Statistical Abstracts of all districts in Maharashtra, Directorate of Economics and Statistics, Government of Maharashtra, Mumbai and (v) Census report viz., agricultural census. The compound growth rates districtwise, regionwise and for entire state, coefficient of variation and Cuddy Della Vella index was used for estimating the growth and instability in area, production and productivity of chickpea in Maharashtra. The study indicates that the production of chickpea was increased due to both area expansion and productivity improvement for the entire period in the State. Similar trend was observed for all regions viz; Western Maharashtra, Vidarbha, Marathwada and Konkan region for the entire study period. The area, production and productivity of chickpea increased at the rate of 4.01 per cent, 6.59 per cent and 2.48 per cent per annum, respectively during the entire period. It was revealed from the study that the area, production and productivity of chickpea were inconsistent or instable for the entire period in all the regions of the state except in Konkan region.
