Abstract:

The study was based on secondary data collected from various issues of Statistical Abstracts of Haryana and other published and unpublished sources. The results revealed that with the passage of time, there has been a substantial change in the cropping pattern in the state. In overall study period (1993-2013) the area, production and productivity of food grains has shown increasing trend with a compound annual growth rate of 0.56, 2.56 and 1.93 per cent per annum while for pulses all these values were in negative. Average area has increased only in case of rice, wheat and barley while the area under other crops like jowar, bajra, maize, cotton, sugarcane, etc. declined during the study period. The cropping pattern has skewed towards rice-wheat cultivation. The decline in the growth of area for pearlmillet and sugarcane is due to shift of area towards paddy while decrease in area of gram is due to shift of area towards wheat.
