Title : Trends in Area, Production and Productivity of Major Pulses in India

Abstract :

In this paper, the investigation is strived to examine the growth trend of major pulses in India. The study is conducted on Bengal gram, Black gram, Pegionpea, Chickpea and Green gram for the 1990- 2020 periods. The total duration of 30 years is divided into three decades to know the in-depth decadal growth of the area, production, and productivity. For the above period, the average compound growth rate (CGR) in major states for Bengalgram as 2.82, 1.34, and 3.5, for Black gram -0.69, 0.53, and 0.215, for Pegionpea 0.65, 1.29, and 0.61, for Chickpea 1.27, 0.96, and 0.74, and for Green gram -0.71, 0.55, and 0.116 is observed in the area, production, and productivity. Decadal growth also approximately reflected similar trend for all the major pulses. Low productivity and low net return are minimizing the profit in this highly remunerative crop.
