The paper analyzes the growth and instability in terms of area, production and productivity of wheat in Uttar Pradesh. The growth was examined by compound annual growth rate and contribution of area and productivity towards output growth by decomposition analysis. The study relates to 1990-91 to 2013-14 which is further divided into five sub-periods. The area under wheat registered positive growth throughout the period in all the regions of the state. While, in case of production and productivity, the positive growth was observed except sub-period III. The productivity of wheat was found to be highest in western region whereas lowest in the Bundelkhand region. After instability analysis it was observed that there is high instability in production and productivity as compared to area under wheat. Further, the growth in wheat production is decomposed into three components viz. area effect, yield effect and interaction effect. The results of decomposition analysis revealed the dominance of yield effect in the growth of production.

Keywords: Instability, Growth, Decomposition analysis, Wheat, Cuddy-Della Valle index.
