Keywords: Key Words: agricultural productivity, agricultural productivity zone, rank co-efficient method


Assessment of spatio-temporal changes of agricultural productivity in Jalpaiguri district has been mode in this paper. In doing so, special emphasis has been given on block level disparity among the production of five major crops for which a comparative study of variation has been worked out. Agricultural productivity zone has been prepared for the district on the basis of quantum of total production. To identify the variation of agricultural productivity of the whole district, rank co-efficient method has been applied by which high, medium and low productive zones are to be found.
