Main aim of this article was to examine the relationship between MSP/SMP, area under cultivation, productivity and overall production of selected crops in India. It also examined impact of MSP/SMP, area under cultivation, productivity on overall production of Rice, Wheat, Pulses, Cotton and Sugarcane. In this study required data were collected form 1980-81 to 2009-10 and analysed according to the objectives of the present study. The results indicate that area under cultivation and productivity were most significant predictor and MSP/SMP were not significant predictor of production in case of Rice, Pulses, Cotton and Sugarcane. However, MSP, area under cultivation and productivity were only found significant in wheat production in India.
