Sources of Growth and Variability in Production of Cumin in Jodhpur vis-à-vis Rajasthan
Cumin production of Rajasthan and Jodhpur were kept a dominant position in Seed spices economy of the country. This study was attempt to present the comparative performance of cumin in Rajasthan and Jodhpur. For drawing a meaningful termination of Agri-Export Zones on cumin production in Rajasthan, the selected study period from 1991-92 to 2018-19 was divided into three sub-periods as Ex-ante Agri-Export Zone (1991-92 to 2004-05), Ex-post Agri-Export Zone (2005-06 to 2018-19) and overall study period (1991-92 to 2018-19). The results of the growth analysis revealed that area, yield and production of cumin in Jodhpur was increased faster than Rajasthan and period-I. In case of instability, the production and yield of this crop in period-II were more instable than other two periods in Rajasthan and Jodhpur. The introduction of high yielding varieties has boosted up production Rajasthan especially in Jodhpur. During period-I the growth of output was contributed mainly due to increasing area under the crop. However, in period-II development of high yielding varieties have positive and significant effect on expanding production in Jodhpur and Rajasthan.
