Abstract

India contributes around 38% of world’s area under pulses. India’s share in world area was around 56% in 1961 but gradually declined to less than 40% since 2000. In terms of production, India contributed around 23% in 2016, whereas India’s contribution was around 45% in 1961. Though India’s pulses production was always fluctuating, the decline in the share of production was more prominent since 2001. Similarly, Indian pulses yield was also much below the world average.
