TAXONOMIC ANALYSIS OF ZONAL DIFFERENCES IN RELATION TO FACTORS OF CROP PRODUCTION IN INDIA

Taxonomic analysis of inter—and intra—variations of 18 Indian States was done with respect to several agro-economic factors of crops' production classified into five different sets of parameters to examine zonal differences. Reclassification of States of four major geographical zones into larger clusters/groups resulted in different groups for different sets of parameters. The variations noted were not so prominent for southern States as that in case of other three zones. Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, Gujarat, Bihar and Orissa each showed wide diversities from other 17 States for a good number of factors in respective cases. Hill area States of north east and north west regions showed high resemblance for several factors. Punjab and Haryana came out to be highly associated among themselves and they appeared together in same cluster in all the five situations
