Abstract

Jaipur district occupies first position in area and production of green chilli (Capsicum annum) in the state of Rajasthan. The present investigation was undertaken to study about growth rates in area, production and productivity of green chilli in Jaipur district as well as Rajasthan state. The secondary data on area, production and productivity of green chilli were collected for Jaipur district and Rajasthan state for the period 2002-03 to 2016-17. Growth rates were estimated by using statistical tools like linear model, compound growth rate model and CAGR mathematic model for calculating annual growth rate. The results revealed that area and production of green chilli were estimated to be significantly positive but productivity was negative in the district of Jaipur and the state of Rajasthan as a whole for the period 2002-03 to 2016-17. Results were also found that the growth rates in area and production of green chilli were estimated to be significantly positive i.e. 6.93 and 3.88 per cent per annum respectively, and productivity was negative i.e. -4.46 per cent per annum in the Jaipur district, whereas, in Rajasthan state, area and production of green chilli were estimated to be significantly positive i.e. 8.00 and 1.64 per cent per annum, respectively, and productivity was negative i.e. -0.013 per cent per annum during the period 2002-03 to 2016-17. Therefore, the study recommends increasing the productivity of the green chilli mainly by developing improved varieties of green chilli suiting to the changing agro climatic conditions of the state.
