India is the largest producer and consumer of pulses in the world. However the production and consumption of pulses in India is low with inter-regional variations and the growth rate of area and production of pulses is negligible as compared to cereals. Many studies have been done for the different state of the country but no study has been done inter regionally for the state of Uttar Pradesh. This study has analyzed the production pattern and consumption pattern of pulses in different regions of Uttar Pradesh. The study is based on secondary data collected from published sources. Compound growth rate was estimated to study the yield performance of pulses in different regions of the state. Consumption pattern among rural and urban households and across different regions was analyzed. It was observed that production of pulses in Uttar Pradesh has decreased from 49 lakh tones (1995) to 27 lakh tones (2009) and yield has decreased from 17q/ha (1995) to 10 q/ha(2009) respectively. Bundelkhand region was found as dominant in pulse production with about 11 lakh hectares of area and 16.86 lakh tones production in triennium ending (TE) 2009, growth rate was also highest in Bundelkhand region in 2000-09. The share of pulses in consumption basket was not uniform among the regions and showed inter-regional variations.
