The study particularly aims at examining the growth and instability of area, production and yield of jowar crop in India and resource use efficiency of Jowar in India. The trend lines show a percentage decrease in both area and production but productivity was slightly increasing. The growth rates in area, production and yield was calculated using compound growth rates. Panel data analysis random effects in the jowar data (1997-2014) and its Resource use efficiency indicates decreasing returns to scale
