The present study was conducted in Kolhapur district of Maharashtra state during 1980-81 to 2011-12. The study found that area under wheat, bajra, gram, redgram had declined and area under rice, Kharif jowar, Rabi jowar, greengram, blackgram, fruits and vegetables, soybean sugarcane and groundnut was increased. Similarly area under total cereal and pulse was also declined. The growth rates in area, production and productivity of oilseeds for entire period have turned out to be positive and increased at the rate of 2.02, 3.65 and 1.43, respectively. Among the different cash crops cotton was positive and highly significant in period II, and III, except productivity in period III negatively significant. Sugarcane had a positive and significant growth rates for area, production and productivity as 25.98, 31.71 and 5.07 per cent, respectively. This might be attributed growth of sugar factory increased. From the above analysis, it can be concluded that there exist wide variability in the performance of individual crops in terms of changes in their performance, total production, productivity in the district over a period under study.

Keywords: Scope and prospects of agriculture, Wheat, kharif.
