The purpose of this study was to investigate the growth and instability in area, production, and productivity of major seed spices in Rajasthan. This study was entirely based on secondary data. The study period was separated into three sub-periods: pre-Agri Export Zone Period (1991-92 to 2004-05), post-Agri Export Zone Period (2005-06 to 2019-20), and overall period (1991-92 to 2019-20). The data was analyzed using the compound annual growth rate, Cuddy-Della Valle instability index to accomplish the study’s objectives. The results of the study indicated that highest growth rates were observed in the production of fenugreek (7.53%), cumin (18.66%), and fennel (11.15%) during the pre-AEZ, post-AEZ, and overall periods. The highest instability was found in fennel production in Rajasthan, with 49.73, 65.51, and 73.76 percent, respectively. Based on findings, researchers should give more emphasis to increasing the area under cultivation and improving spice productivity. The state government should establish Agri-Export Zones for fenugreek and fennel crops like cumin and coriander.


  • The maximum growth rate reported in cumin production in Rajasthan
  • The highest variability in area and production of fennel were found in the overall period.
  • Area and production of coriander augmented negatively after the establishment of AEZ.
