Production of food grains in Haryana: A District wise analysis


Akshu, Dr. Lalit Sharma

Agriculture being the prime moving force plays a considerable role in the economic development of India. It accounts 17.4 per cent share in the GDP of India and provides employment to more than 50 per cent workforce. The production of total food grains has increased substantially in the country but providing food grains to the growing population is a matter of concern as it is possible only by increasing the production and productivity of food grains. The present research work discusses the district-wise trends in the growth of food grains production in Haryana. Secondary sources of data have been used for the period from 2005-06 to 2014-15. The result revealed that growth in the production of food grains was due to the growth in area and productivity; and largely affected by the increase in area under food grains. The study also revealed that the highest growth in the production of food grains has been recorded by Sirsa (5.25) while Kurukshetra, Karnal, Panipat and Nuh districts recorded negative growth rate.
