ABSTRACT
Analytical study of agricultural productivity in Sindhudurg district is presented in this paper. Thetechnique used has considered the average yield per hectare of selected crops and land occupancy of selectedcrops in the study region. For the study region considered for the present study for which available rankingcoefficient are given in ascending order for each crop separately then crop yield and concentration indices rankingco-efficient of each crop are summed and divided by two. From the ranking coefficient calculated for 1981-86 and2003-08 and categories are made according to the three efficiency grades viz. high grade, moderate grade andlow grade for discussing the spatiotemporal variations in the study region. In a same way, overall rankingcoefficient have been worked out by summing the values of all the selected crops in each tahsil and divided by ‘n,’where ‘n’ refer to the number of crops considered. To avoid the annual fluctuations in the level of crop productivitythere is considered average productivity level and statistics of five year i.e. 1981-86 and 2003-08
