Abstract

The objective of this paper is to examine the nature of crop diversification and crop concentration in Orissa in the last one and half decade. It is pursued through measuring crop diversification and crop concentration index. We have used Herphindal and Entropy measure for crop diversification. The Locational quotient measure has been employed to measure crop concentration. The finding shows that in all most all districts of Orissa, crop specialization is happening and more so in the last phase of our study. Then employing an ordinary least square (OLS) equation we have figured out the major determinants of crop diversification.

Keywords: Crop Diversification, Orissa agriculture, crop concentration, spatio-temporal analysis
