The present study was undertaken to assess status of Large Cardamom (Amomum subulatum) among major crops in Sikkim. The study was measured based on area, production and productivity including cumulative annual exponential growth rate (CAEGR) over a time period from 2003-2015.The study revealed positive growth rate (0.36) of the area under large cardamom crop. However, the production showed a negative growth rate (-1.68) that may be attributed to some viral disease complex, nutritional deficiencies factors and inadequate management. Productivity of large cardamom depicted a positive growth rate (0.51). In contrast, growth rate of the area under ginger was found 6.27 and that of production and productivity was found 6.63 and 2.98, respectively. Growth rate of area, production and productivity of paddy was found 0.70, 1.89 and 1.20, respectively. Growth rate of area under maize was found negative (-2.72) and the same was in case of production.
