Analysis of Growth Trends of Production and Consumption of Fertilizer Nutrients in India
The present study was carried out to determine the trend in production and consumption in India from 1990-91 to 2019-20. The study had been divided into three phases viz. I period (1990-91 to 1999-2000), II period (2000-01 to 2009-10) and III (2010-11 to 2019-20). The compound growth rates (CGRs) of production and consumption were estimated as for three phases as well as for the overall period. The consumption of fertilizer is continuously increased year by year. Only nitrogen fertilizer shows positive growth i.e., 0.35 per cent. The annual growth rate of consumption of Nitrogen, phosphatic and potassic fertilizer is 3.04, 3.77 and 4.09 per cent respectively between 1990-91 to 2018-19. The highest growth of consumption has been registered in potassic fertilizer. However, after 2010-11 there is a negative trend and considerable decline in fertilizer use. The growth rate falls to -0.21 per cent, with phosphatic fertilizer decline at -1.29 per cent and potassic fertilizer at -0.31 per cent.
