A Spatio-Temporal Variation of Agricultural Productivity in Jalpaiguri District, West Bengal
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. Lastly different physio-cultural reasons behind the disparity have also been discussed. Thus overall changing pattern of the agricultural productivity of Jalpaiguri district has been analyzed in this paper.
