Regional disparities in crop productivity of Odisha
Sanjib Kumar Hota
The disparities in the productivity of some of the important crops such as Ceareals, Pulses, Oilseeds and Cash crops across various districts of Odisha at two period of time i.e. 1993-97 and 2010-15 have been analysed in this paper. The classifications of districts based on the Productivity of the crops under study have been made by using Yang’s Yeild index. It is found that the disparities in the productivity of cereal crops and Pulses have been increasing, it is unchanged for oilseeds and the disparity is reducing for cash crops over time. However the overall result (Composite index) reveals that the disparities in productivity of varios crops across the districts in Odisha is increasing over time. Hence, suitable policy measures may be designed to overcome the problems.
