RECENT TREND OF PULSES PRODUCTION IN WEST BENGAL

The study is an attempt to examine the present status of pulses in West Bengal. Over the years, area and production of pulses has declined grossly in both the state as well as country level. Exponential growth rate of area, production and productivity of pulses of West Bengal were estimated to be - 3.49, -2.47 and 1.02 respectively as against -0.12, 0.37 and 0.87 respectively at the country level during period 1975-76 to 2005-06. Pulses area as a percentage of Gross cropped area has come down from 12.86 in 1960-61 to 2.31 in 2004-05 in West Bengal. Due to Low productivity, low net return, pulses have been marginalized by highly remunerative competing crops.
