Growth and Instability in Area, Production and Productivity of Mango Crop in Gujarat
The mango, being the chief commercial fruit of Gujarat state occupies the highest area among all fruit crops. Present study estimates the growth rate and instability of area, production and productivity of Mango in Navsari and Valsad districts and Gujarat state during the years 2005–06 to 2015–16. To analyse the growth rate and instability of area, production and productivity of mango, the statistical tools like CGR, CV and decomposition of production were used. The Results of the study showed that the CGR of area and production in Navsari, Valsad and Gujarat were found positive and significant. Whereas, the CGR for productivity in the same mentioned areas were observed positive and non significant. The fluctuation in production was more in the Gujarat State as a whole compared to the selected districts.
