Abstract
India holds an important place in pulses being the world's largest producer, importer and consumer of pulses. Gujarat is one of promising state of India in terms of pulse production and consumption. Within Gujarat, northern part of state contributes higher in term of pulse production. This region specific pulses growth and instability in area, production, productivity and price, arrival seasonality affect overall pulses scenario in state. Therefore, this study focused on to study the growth and instability in area, production, productivity and also price, arrival seasonality with reference to North Gujarat. Overall, North Gujarat was observed positive growth in yield (3.77%), but it is not substantial to increase the production (-2.55%) of cluster bean over the study period. Except, Patan all other districts of North Gujarat was observed positive growth in yield resultant it increased production of cluster bean at regional level with 1.41 percent per annum. The growth (4.78%) performance of production of green gram during the study period had been satisfactory because yield increase (4.65%) favoured this crop even small decline in area (-0.74%). The growth (-5.21%) performance of moth bean production during the study period had been extremely poor even yield increased with 8.26 percent but growth in area decrease was substantial (-13.1%). Growth performance of tur crop during the study period had been marginalized even yield increased with 9.45 percent in North Gujarat because acreage decrease (-10.09) was more prominent phenomena. Growth performance of urad crop during the study period had been guided by the yield increase and marginal acreage increase as compared to any other major pulses in North Gujarat. Being an industrial crop and there is no spoilage, so price fluctuation was very low in cluster bean as compared to other pluses crops. The seasonal prices of green gram were higher in the month of April, May and June in most of the selected markets. In summer season, there is a scare of vegetables and green gram is supplement to it, so the prices were higher during April to June months. Tur prices were higher in month of April to July. The seasonal arrival indices of urad were higher in the month of October, November and December in the selected market of study area. In moth bean, there was no relationship between market arrivals and prices during study period.
