Abstract
The level of agriculture development of different districts of Haryana was obtained with help of composite index based on optimum combination of eight agriculture development indicators. The district-wise data on these indicators for the year 2013–14 was used for obtaining the level of development of all the twenty one districts of the state. The level of development was estimated separately for the agriculture sector. The district of Sirsa is ranked first and the district of Mahendergarh is ranked last in the agriculture development. Wide disparities were observed in the level of development between different districts of the state. For bringing out uniform regional development, potential target of various developmental indicators have been estimated in respect of low developed districts. These districts require improvement of various dimensions in some of the indicators for enhancing the level of development.
