Abstract

During the Green Revolution, High Yielding variety of food grains were introduced to boost agricultural productivity and help attain food security. However, it necessitated important changes in administration and required important agricultural inputs. This study aims to analyze the spatio-temporal trends in the area under high yielding variety of food grains in the NCR districts of Haryana. The time series data collected from secondary data sources from 1980-2020 revealed a continuing trend of increasing cropped area under high yielding variety of food grains. The production of major crops like rice, wheat, maize and Bajra are recorded to have been increasing with wide usage of high yielding variety of seeds. In addition, the close proximity to the National Capital has ensured timely availability of necessary agricultural inputs that have crucial parameters driving increased production. Along with that, the NCR region has provided an agglomerated market for the agricultural produce that has enabled farmers to gain increased remunerative benefits for their produce.
