Abstract:

The present study attempts to analyze the trends in the area, production and productivity of major food grain crops in the state of Nagaland for a period of ten years i.e., from 2011-12 to 2020-21. Statistical tools such as average, percentage and line charts have been used to study. To measure the variability in the area, production and productivity of major food grains, Coefficient of variation (CV) has been computed. Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR), has also been used to estimate the growth in the area, production and productivity of food grains in the state. The finding shows that the production and productivity of food grains have experienced an upward trend, registering a percentage increase of 24.50 percent and 13.26 percent, respectively. Cultivation of food grains occupies more than 75 percent of the total cropped area throughout the period. Under food grain area, cultivation of cereal occupied more than 66 percent of the total cropped area. Rice being the stable crop of the people occupied more than 47 percent of the total cropped area. The percentage area of jhum paddy and maize to total cropped area witnessed a decreasing trend during the period. The share of agriculture and allied sector in Gross State Value Added (GSVA) has also been decreasing during the period.

Highlights

  • Production and productivity of food grains in Nagaland have been increasing consistently increasing over the years.
  • The area under the cultivation of food grains predominate the total cropped area in the state.
