Abstract:

Sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.) is an important commercial crop in India and plays an important role in industrial and agricultural economy of our country. Chhattisgarh, the state which has been known as Bowl of Rice of the country. The sugar production in all four factories (two in Kabirdham, one in Balod and one in Surajpur district) in the state had reached 65000 metric tons. The major crops grown in the study area Paddy, Sugarcane, Wheat, Gram, Soybean, Vegetables and Pigeon pea in Kabirdham district. A stratified random sampling has been conducted for estimation of study variable under proportional allocation among the strata and statistical technique Herfindahl Index has been used for computation of crop diversification index in different blocks of Kabirdham district. Paddy covered highest cropped area in Kawardha, Bodla and Pandariya blocks are 38.90%, 42.45% and 46.11% respectively. Sugarcane covered highest cropped area in Kawardha, Bodla and Pandariya blocks are 33.16%, 36.95% and 38.40% respectively. The estimated area under Sugarcane in Kawardha, bodla and Pandariya are 8823.6 ha, 6698.16 ha and 8633.58 ha respectively and overall for Kabirdham district it is 24155.34 ha. The estimated production under Sugarcane in Kawardha, Bodla and Pandariya are 2218593.6 quintal, 1667593.76 quintal and 2078359.38 quintal respectively and overall for Kabirdham district it is 5964546.74 quintal. The crop diversification index moved in a narrow range during the post change period in almost all the blocks in Kabirdham district. The acreage crop diversification index of the district increased from 0.64 to 0.67, which shows diversified to more remunerative crops. The constraints pertaining to cultivation of Sugarcane, lack of institutional support was the major problem as reported by (83.80 %) Sugarcane growers.
