Abstract:

The present study is conducted with a view to analyze growth and trend in Area, Production, Productivity and trade of sugarcane producing in India. A time series data from 1970-1971 to 2014-2015 (45 year) of major sugarcane producing states Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra in India was used. The compound growth rate as well as trend analysis indicated that the Area Production and Productivity under sugarcane in Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra. The area, production under sugarcane in Uttar Pradesh was more than Maharashtra but productivity of sugarcane in Uttar Pradesh was less than Maharashtra. The results showed that area, production and productivity of sugarcane was increased over the time period due to more area brought under new HYV and improved the technology of showing method of sugarcane in both states. It is revealed from the results that area, production and productivity of sugarcane is increasing at the rate of 1.20 per cent, 2.27 per cent and 1.20 per cent respectively in Uttar Pradesh and 4.10 per cent, 3.80 per cent and -0.2 per cent respectively in Maharashtra. At India level area, production and productivity grew at the rate of 1.6 per cent, 2.5 per cent and 0.9 per cent respectively in India. The export and import of sugar gained at the rate of 3.04 per cent and 18.84 per cent respectively.
