Rabi Pulse Crops Cultivation in Madhya Pradesh (India): Growth and Decomposition Analysis
This study analyses growth performance and relative contribution of area, production and productivity of major rabi pulse crops i.e. chickpea and lentil crops in Madhya Pradesh. The secondary time series data used for the study were collected from various publications of Government departments for thirty years period from 1991-92 to 2020-21, which was further segregated decade wise into three periods namely Period-I (1991-92 to 1999-2000), Period-II (2001-02 to 2009-10) and Period-III (2011-12 to 2020-21). The exponential trend model was used to measure growth rates of area, production and productivity of rabi pulse crop and the relative contributions of factors of production were measured by principle decomposition model. The study indicated growth rates of area, production and productivity of chickpea at the rate of 1.62, 5.68 and 3.99 per cent, respectively, whereas, for lentil the magnitude of growth were 1.86, 7.40 and 5.44 per cent, respectively. However, growth of area only observed to be significant in both the crops (chickpea and lentil). During entire study period, it was seen that yield effect was found to be more instrumental than the area and their interaction effects to increase the total production of both the crops.
- As shown in entire study period, the area of both the pulse crops i.e. chickpea and lentil was reported positive and significant growth pattern.
- Yield effect was more dominant than the area and their interaction effects to uplift the total output of both the rabi pulse crops i.e., chickpea and lentil.
