Abstract:

Karnataka State has a typical composition having a large share of its area under highly diversified agricultural crops, higher growth in agriculture assumes great importance and is a matter of concern for policy planners and research scholars in recent times. A composite index is a grouping of equities, indexes or other factors combined in a standardized way, providing a useful statistical measure of overall food performance over time, and it is also known simply as a "composite". Usually, a composite index has a large number of factors that are averaged together to form a product representative of an overall food sector. Indicators are useful for determining trends and drawing conclusions for particular issues in policy analysis. They can also be helpful in making policy and in monitoring performance. When several indicators are compiled into a single index using a specific technique, then a composite indicator is formed. The composite indicator measures multi-dimensional concepts, which cannot be explained by a single indicator. Here, Food grain Production Index (FgPI) has been constructed using Principal Component Analysis (PCA) for 30 districts of Karnataka, India. In present study, the indicators like production of tur, production of paddy, production of total pulses and production of total cereals have been taken.
