Abstract:

Pulses are the smart foods provide high quality proteins are important in achieving sustainable development goals. India ranks first with respect to pulse area (35.81 %) and production (28.21 %). Present study has taken up to analyse instability in area, production and productivity of pulses over different time periods and find out contribution of area, productivity and there interaction effects to total pulse production. Growth rates of area, production and productivity are highly significant in the period 2003-2017. Higher instability or variation in area is observed in the period after National Food Security Mission (2003-2017) that is to the extent of 6.13. Higher instability in production was observed during post green revolution period (1964-176) that is to the extent of 11.45. Higher instability in productivity was observed during pre-Economic liberalization period (1977-90) that is to the extent of 7.83. Decomposition analysis has showed significant changes in the contribution of area, productivity and interaction effects, which resulted in increased production of pulses at national level from 12.85 mt to 16.38 mt and at state level from 0.68 mt to 1.26 mt. Hence there is a need to implement programmes and policies which doubles the production and farmers income as well.
