In recent years the strategy of rural development planning is attaining greater importance. The present work has been brought out to draw the attention of policy makers and concerned authorities for help in future planning of rural areas of the district. In present study main attention is focused on crop productivity as an indicator of rural development. Rural development may be defined as a process of enabling the villagers to fulfill their needs especially, physical, economic, social and intellectual. For the present study to assess the temporal differences in the level of crop productivity, the statistical technique formulated by Bhatia, has been used in the study area with regard to nine crops and also for calculating percentile change during 1970-71 to 2000-01. For the proper measurement of overall crop productivity, the composite crop productivity index value has been calculated. Composite crop productivity index noted in 2000-01 was 95.47 percent, which has increased by 1.02 percent since 1970-71. Thus we can say that yield indices and composite productivity index of maximum crops has increased from 1970-71 to 2000-01. Pages: 191-194 | Views: 84 | Downloads: 24Download Full Article: Click Here
