Abstract:

The paper examines the growth analysis of area, production and productivity of pigeon pea and chickpea in Marathwada region of Maharashtra State. Compound growth rate was estimated by fitting non-linear model to the area, production and productivity data for the period from 1986-87 to 2015-16. The fitted model was analyzed using Marquardt algorithm. The compound growth rates were tested for their significance. The results shows that, the compound growth rate in area, production and productivity of pigeon pea was positive and significant at 1 per cent level of significance during overall study period except in Aurangabad and Parbhani district in these districts growth in pigeon pea area was decreased. During the overall period, the growth performance of pigeon pea in Marathwada region was positive and significance in area, production and productivity. The highest compound growth rate in area of pigeon pea was observed in Hingoli district. Highest production and productivity growth rate was seen in Latur district. The area, production and yield of chickpea were consistently increased during the study period. Improvement in the productivity of pulses was notable feature in all the districts of Marathwada region. Expansion of area enhancement in productivity and improvement in productivity was observed in major pulses in the region. This was because of implementation of pulse development programme by government of India in the state.
