Cropping Pattern in Karimnagar District of Telangana – An Economic Analysis

January 7, 2021 Economics and Management 0

The cropping pattern is a complicated idea because it varies over time and space. It can be defined as the percentage of area under multiple crops at a time point. It also shows in a specific land area the time and spatial arrangement or series of crops and/or fallows. The evaluation of the shift in cropping patterns in several regions is crucial in order to provide a better understanding of the method of agricultural production. This research was carried out to look at the dynamics of cropping trends in the Telangana district of Karimnagar. The requisite information was obtained from the Economics and Statistics Directorate of the Government of Telangana from 1966-67 to 2016-17. And with the aid of the Markov chain, it was analysed by a wise decade and analysed for five cycles during the last decade. The key findings of the study showed that every group of crops did not maintain its area in Karimnagar, but over the quantity, the acreage of the crops continuously changed from one set of crops to another set. The area of cereals was found to be more stable, while the loss of area from cereals to commercial crops such as cotton and turmeric etc. suggested that the region’s cropping pattern is heading towards diversification in the northern zone of Telangana. Within the variety of crops, there is a broader scope for deciding to place agriculture on the pedestal of Sustainable development, which has to be considered in analytical and extension programmes.
