Abstract

In the State of Chhattisgarh, nicknamed the Rice Bowl of India, about 80% of the population is engaged in agriculture. It has been mostly engaged in the paddy-based mono-cropping system for a long period. So, crop diversification (a shift of area away from a less profitable crop toward more profitable ones) is one of the measures, expected to enhance the economic growth of the farmers in this State. Therefore, the present study attempts to assess the status of the area under different crops in the Kharif season in Chhattisgarh, based on secondary data for the period of 19 years, i.e., 2000-01 to 2018-19. For the Kharif season, the area is under crops such as pigeon pea and maize have, in general, increased over the period 2001-19. while the area under moong and sesamum over the period has decreased.

Keywords: Crop diversification, status of area, kharif season
