Abstract:

The present study was conducted in Jaipur district of Rajasthan. To check the instability of major fruits and vegetable crops stored in cold storage moving average and coefficient of variations methods were used. Instability is one of the important decision parameter in development dynamics and moreover in the context of horticultural crop production. Coefficients of quadratic function estimated for instability in area and production of important fruit crops over time. Estimations were made for important eight fruit crops as well as for all fruit crops. Instability in the area under lemon, aonla, and pomegranate was shown decreasing over time at decreasing rate while instability in case of area of orange, sapota, mango, mosambi, and all fruits taken together were increasing at decreasing rate. Instability in the production of vegetable crops show decreasing in tomato, pea and sweet potato, whereas it was found to be increasing in carrot, onion, potato and all vegetables. Instability index in the area under fruit crops varied from 2.5 to 545.65. Maximum index in the area under fruit crops in only 545.65 and lowest one was observed in mango that is only 2.52. It shows that area under the fruit crops does not fluctuate as fluctuation is very low. The instability index varied from 54.08 in all vegetables to 2407.87 in the area of carrot. This shows that even highest instability in the area under vegetables is just half of highest Instability in the production of fruits or vegetables. In six cases instability index was less than one thousand and all the cases were less than 2500. In the case of vegetable production as well as instability index was less than 1000 in five out of seven cases and 1295.71 in one case that is sweet potato and 5326.94 in case of carrot. Pondering of the data shows that instability index was highest in production of fruits followed production of vegetables, area under vegetables and area under the fruit crops.
