Abstract:

Gujarat is one of the main cotton producing states in India, which ranks first in production and second in area in the country.This study was therefore, undertaken to study the growth dimensions of long staple cotton in Gujarat. The necessary time series data on area, production and yield were compiled from various official published sources for the period from 1980-81 to 2015-16. The trend of long staple cotton was examined with the compound growth rates and instability indices in Gujarat. The results revealed that there was an increase in average of area, production and yield of long staple cotton in all the three periods. In terms of percentage change, production noticed the highest per cent change during Post-Liberalization Period over Pre-Liberalization Period (538.23 %). The highest instability (43.97%) and the highest significant growth rate (7.50 % / annum) were observed in production of long staple cotton during Overall Period. The results revealed that the area and yield contributed jointly for the significant increase in cotton production during Overall Period. The results of Hazell’s decomposition analysis showed that yield variance was the main contributor to the production variance in both Period I (50.9%) and Period II (83.34 %) in the state.
